The Reverend Timothy Alden 
founder and first president of allegheny college 




William McKinley 
twenty-fifth president of the united states 



WILLIAM McKINLEY 
A son of Old Allegheny 

In September 1860, William McKinley accompanied by a 
boyhood chum, William M. Osborne, later consul-general at 
London, journeyed by stage from his home in Poland, Ohio, 
to Meadville, and entered Allegheny College, intending to com- 
plete the regular four years course of study. However, before 
he could resume his second year's work the Civil War came, 
and thereby abruptly ending his college training, as it did that 
ol many other young men, and at its close he entered upon 
the study of law without further college preparation. Through- 
out his busy career he manifested his loyalty and devotion to 
the college and several young men were directed to Allegheny 
through the influence of William McKinley. 

When Governor of Ohio, he returned to Allegheny to de- 
liver the commencement address in June 189 5, accom.panied 
by Mrs. McKinley. The degree of Doctor of Laws was con- 
ferred upon him, and he revisited old Bentley Hall where he 
had attended classes thirty-live yaers before. 

On September 25th, 1896, one hundred students and sev- 
eral of the faculty made a pilgrimage to his home in Canton to 
extend greetings in the midst of his campaign. They went by a 
special train that was gaily decorated with the college colors. 

Five years later, on that fateful September night when the 
tragic news came from Buffalo, President Crawford made his 
way to the old belfry in Bentley Hall, and in the stillness of 
the midnight hour, the tolling of the bell that forty years be- 
fore had summoned William McKinley, as a lad, to classes and 
chapel, solemnly announced to the anxious college and city 
the close of his earthly career.

Mr. McKinley in Canton in 1896.

PRESIDENT OF ALLEGHENY COLLEGE. 1921— 



ALLEGHENY COLLEGE 

As a college with one hundred five years of history back 
of it, Allegheny is in possession of a body of tradition which 
gives it a unique position among the colleges of this region. 
A large Alumni Association, showing increasing interest in the 
college and loyalty to its academic standards, gives the col- 
lege a position of great advantage in a large number of cen- 
ters of population which are sending students to college to- 
day. The success of Allegheny students in all vocations is a 
matter of pride to the old college. Allegheny has always held 
firmly to a definite educational aim and policy. There have 
been no periods of great d&pression, no times of spasmodic 
growth, but for one hundred five years the college has gone 
forward steadily increasing in power. The close of the first 
century of the college showed a total of assets of over two 
and one-half million dollars. The opening of the second 
century of the college witnesses the beginning of a strong 
effort to add a million and a quarter to the permanent re- 
sources of the institution. To this enterprise the trustees, 
the alumni, the student body and all the friends of Allegheny 
are giving their best efforts. With the successful accomplish- 
ment of this end the college will be firmly established in the 
very front rank of the best and most favorably known colleges 
of medium size of America. It is not the purpose to increase 
the enrollment of the student body for the present, but 
rather to increase the equipment and reinforce the teaching 
staff, and to build u.p more thoroughly the libraries and labora- 
tories of the college.

Preface 



In gathering together the material for a handbooic of Alle- 
gheny College our purpose has not been to compile a history 
of the college, for that has already been done, but to gather 
together the main facts of interest, and to place them before 
the reader in such a way that they may be found quickly and 
conveniently; secondly, to present to the college, the alumni 
and the high school libraries, a source from which all ques- 
tions .pertaining to Allegheny College can be answered with 
clearness and satisfaction; thirdly, to give Allegheny College 
greater publicity. 

A considerable amount of the material for the book has 
been secured through the co-operation of members of the stu- 
dent body and the secretaries of the various organizations. In- 
valuable advice and assistance has been given by Miss Edith 
Rowley, '05, and Dr. Stanley S. Swartley. Prof. C. F. Ross 
and Dr. W. A. Elliott have given aid in authenticating the 
book. The assistance given by the alumni has been greatly 
appreciated, particularly that of Mr. Don M. Larrabee, of Wil- 
liamsport. Pa. Interesting information was taken from the old 
relics and library of R. Simpson Van Home, of Meadville. 

The data for the Chronology (1) has been secured from 
these sources.

The City of Meadville 



On the evening of May 2, 1788, a party of ten vigorous 
•pioneers, wending their way along the banks of French creek, 
struck camp in the valley south of Round Top. They were the 
first settlers of Crawford county, and the founders of the City 
of Meadville. On the next day a log hut was built. Some of 
the settlers moved on, but David Meade remained and with a 
few others, built a log block-house as a protection from the 
Indians. That fall, David and John Mead brought their fam- 
ilies from Northumberland. By the end of the century, the 
nucleus formed by David Mead and his companions had grown 
into a live village. In I8l5 Allegheny College was founded. 
By 1830 the population of Mead settlement had reached 1,104. 
By 1875, Meadville was joined to the outside world by a plank 
road, canal and railroad. Mills, factories, and business houses 
were established. Industry in general had increased by leaps 
and bounds. The population of the city had passed the 10,000 
mark by 1890, and by 1920, it had increased to 15,000 in- 
habitants. 

Allegheny College had realized a more startling growth 
than the city. From a mere handful of students under Presi- 
dent Alden in 1820, it now numbers five hundred. The atti- 
tude of the townspeople toward the students has always been 
friendly and encouraging. Church receptions given at the 
opening of the fall term tend to draw even a closer bond be- 
tween the town and the college. 

The city now possesses seventeen churches of all denomina- 
tions, Allegheny College, the Meadville Theological School, the 
Meadville Commercial College, the Pennsylvania College of 
Music and a good public school system. From the very first, 
Meadville has possessed an unusually high percentage of 
citizens of scholarly attainments. 

It maintains a well equip.ped free public library, two daily 
?.nd one weekly newspaper; two hospitals, the City Hospital 
and the Spencer Hospital (Roman Catholic); and an Odd Fel- 
lows Orphanage, supported by the Odd Fellows order. Two 
railroads, the Erie and the Bessemer serve the city and the 



i8 



OLD ALLEGHENY 



Northwestern Electric Railway connects with the New York 
Central at Erie and the Pennsylvania at Linesville. The same 
trolley com-pany maintains the street railway system of the 
city. There are a number of good hotels, an opera house, 
several amusement houses, two national banks and a trust 
company, a new state armory, an excellent city water works, 
with artesian wells, a complete system of sewerage, electric 
and gas lighting and heating, and an unusually well equipped 
fire department. A business men's exchange and a Chamber 
of Commerce regulate the business interests. The city, long 
honored as the county seat of Crawford county, possesses one 
of the finest court houses in the state of Pennsylvania. The 
business men of the city are loyal supporters of the college 
and the college community generously patronizes Meadville 
merchants. Meadville is in many res-pects an ideal college 
town.

Chronology of Allegheny College 



PART I 



"WTien I take the honor of a thing once, I am like your 
tailor's needle— I go through."— Ben Johnson 

We are told, the word "Allegheny" •• means "the great war 
path," in the language of the Seneca Indian. To the stu- 
dent of geography, and the American people generally, the 
word suggests a great river and river basin, tributary to the 
Mississippi; but to us, the sons and daughters of Allegheny 
College, it means something far more dear than any of these, 
it means. Alma Mater, the college we love, and to those who 
know of the struggle of the early founder, and the men who 
have slowly and patiently raised the college to its present 
pinnacle cf success, it is the embodiment of determination, 
courage, sacrifice, and love. 

1815, June 20 — At a town meeting of citizens held at the 
old leg Court House in Meadville, and .presided over by Major 
Roger Alden, it was "Resolved, that an Association should be 
formed for the purpose of establishing a collegiate institution 
at Meadville to be called Allegheny College, of which Rev. 
Timothy Alden should be President, and Professor of Oriental 
Languages; and Rev. Robert Johnson should be Vice-president 
and Professor of Logic, Metaphysics, and Ethics". 

The seminary to be named "Allegheny College" after the 
Allegheny river which supplies such a broad and extensive 
valley with water. 

So it was that in the year of 181 5, Timothy Alden decided 
tc yield to his desires, his spirit of altruism, and his thirst for 
righteous adventure, and started for New York on February l5. 
A very circuitous route was necessary, through Virginia to 
Pittsburgh, from which point he made his way up the Alle- 
gheny and Venango rivers in a flat boat, landing at Meadville 
April 24, 181S. 

* The name was spelled "Alleghany" in the early years of the college. 



20 OLD ALLEGHENY 

Timothy Alden was a graduate from Harvard University, 
likewise his father and grandfather. For some time after his 
graduation, he remained a resident graduate, at the same time 
keeping a school at Marblehead, where he kept up his minis- 
terial duties. He later became principal of private schools at 
Newark, N. J., Portsmouth, N. H., and New York City, being 
also assistant pastor of the Portsmouth Presbyterian church, 
and librarian of the Massachusetts Historical Society. Rever- 
end Alden gained considerable note as a linguist, and anti- 
quarian. He was closely associated throughout his life with 
Isaiah Thomas and William Bentley. 

When the call came to Reverend Alden to lead in the 
founding of the third college west of the Allegheny mountains, 
to surmount the dangers and overcome the ditllculties of the 
long troublesome journey, he did not hesitate. His object in 
coming, he said was to "devote his life to religion, literature, 
and science, and to found a college that should be a blessing 
to many yet unborn". 

Meadville seemed a very unsuitable place for such a pur- 
pose, with scarcely enough land cleared to supply the families 
of a few hundred inhabitants with a bare living. It was but a 
little village scattered among the trees of the wilderness. 
From the very first however, Meadville contained an unusually 
high percentage of men who were greatly interested in the 
progress of education. 

1815, August 20 — At a meeting of the "Associators" held 
in the Meadville Academy, it was "Resolved, that Rev. Timothy 
Alden, President, should be authorized to solicit benefactions 
for the benefit of the institution". In pursuance of that 
object, he canvassed the states of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, 
New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. 

His success was marked — the first contribution on the list 
was a gift of ^30 from ex-President John Adams. In all, ^4,- 
103.30 was raised. Of this amount $2,000 was in lands, $1,- 
642.26 in books, and $461.04 in cash. In addition to this sum, 
$5,685 was raised in Meadville for the project. 

1816, July 4 — The first freshmen class was to enter Alle- 
gheny College as "Probationers". 

July 6 — The first edition of the "Allegheny Magazine", 



OLD ALLEGHENY 21 

published by Dr. Alden, made its appearance. In all, twelve 
numbers were published during 1816-17. 

1817, March 24 — Allegheny College was incorporated by 
an Act of the Legislature of Pennsylvania, and a Board of 
Trustees composed of fifty members was appointed, of which 
the governor, chief justice, and attorney general of the state 
were members, the remainder being citizens of the counties of 
Crawford, Erie, Venango, Mercer, Butler, Beaver, Allegheny, 
Westmoreland, Dauphin, and Philadelphia, in Pennsylvania, and 
the states of Ohio, New Jersey and Massachusetts. 

May 26 — The Board of Trustees convened at Meadville, 
and organized and elected Roger Alden of Meadville as presi- 
dent of the Board. 

July 28 — Only three months after death of his wife, Eliza- 
beth Wormstead Alden, Rev. Alden was inaugurated president 
of the Faculty, and professor of the Oriental Languages, Ec- 
clesiastical History, and Theology, of Allegheny College. 

1818, March 14 — Allegheny published its first advertise- 
ment. An extract from this advertisement quotes: Tuition ^16 
a quarter; board, ^1.50 a week, or boarding, washing, lodging, 
and tuition at |130 a year. Of course, it is entirely out of 
place to offer a present day comparison. It will suffice to say 
that money is much more plentiful, and education more in 
demand. 

On the death of Dr. McKean, a trustee of the college, and 
a Harvard professor, in 18 18, William Bentley, the personal 
friend of Rev. Alden, was elected to fill the vacancy. In ac- 
cepting the honor, Dr. Bentley promised some of his books to 
Allegheny. A few months later he was called by death, and a 
wonderful gift was bestowed on the new college. An addition- 
al gift of five hundred volumes was given by Isaiah Thomas. 
In this way, the real foundation of Allegheny was laid. If it 
had not been for this wonderful library it is doubtful whether 
Allegheny College would ever have survived. It was the pride 
and inspiration of Timothy Alden, and it was that which drew 
the particular attention of the Methodist Conference; therein, 
lay the reason for the erecting of Bentley Hall — to provide a 
place for this invaluable library. 

Roger Alden now resigned as president of the Board of 



22 OLD ALLEGHENY 

Trustees and the Hon. Jesse Moore was elected to till his 
place. (The name was changed from Associators in 1818.) 

1819 — Patrick Farrelly, Esq., followed Mr. Moore as presi- 
dent of the Board. 

1820, April 10 — At the annual meeting of the Board, it 
was resolved to erect a library and hall, to be named Bentley 
Hall. Samuel Lord, Esq., furnished live acres of ground as a 
site for the college, and proffered the use of his brick yard 
for nine months. 

Major Roger Alden succeeded Patrick Farrelly, Esq., as 
president of the Board of Trustees. 

As a supplement to the act "establishing Allegheny in the 
township of Mead and in the County of Crawford", Congress 
voted to pay to the order of the president of the trustees of 
Allegheny College the sum of fifteen hundred dollars to be ap- 
plied by them in erecting a suitable building for the said in- 
stitution. 

July 5 — The cornerstone of the first building of Allegheny 
College, Bentley Hall, was laid. It was a gala day in the small 
town and every one turned in to make the day an auspicious 
one. Under the cornerstone were deposited — a piece of Ply- 
mouth Rock, marble from Dido's Temple in Carthage, a piece 
of brick from the Tower of Babel, mortar from the tomb of 
Virgil, names of trustees and benefactors of Allegheny College, 
a membership list of the Masonic Lodge, and a silver plate with 
Latin inscription giving dates, officials of nation, state and col- 
lege, and a story of the event. Today Bentley Hall is noted 
for its perfect colonial style, and is considered second only in 
state architecture to that of Independence Hall, Philadelphia. 
The plans were made entirely by Timothy Alden. He v/as not 
a man especially trained in the science of architecture, but a 
man whose mind had been broadened and enriched by the study 
of literature, language, history, and science. Does not Bentley 
Hall stand today, as a symbol of the Allegheny system of edu- 
cation? 

The exercises ended with the third anniversary commence- 
ment. 

In 1829 the Beth Gimel Lamed Literary Society was or- 
ganized; the first student activity in Allegheny College, 



O L D A L L E C TI E N Y 23 

1821 — A meagre appropriation of live tliousand dollars, to 
be paid in live installments, was granted Allgeheny College by 
tlie State legislature. 

July 4 — The first class to graduate from Allegheny College 
had only four members. They were, T. J. Fox Alden, David 
Derickson, Alexander M. White, and Robert W. Alden. Ora- 
tions were given in Latin, Hebrew, English, Greek, Syric, and 
German. The exercises took place in the brick meeting house. 

October 31 — By the will of the Honorable James Winthrop, 
of Cambridge, Allegheny received the greater part of his pri- 
vate library. This gift is no doubt one of the most valuable 
that has ever been received by the college. Mr. Wlnlhrop 
was a personal friend of Timothy Alden. 

1822 — The Faculty of Allegheny College was as yet a 
rather uncertain quantity. Reverend Johnson had left Mead- 
ville. Reverend John Van Liew who served for a short time 
in 1821, had departed, David Derickson, '21, who had taught 
for a little over a year, was admitted to the local bar. Timothy 
Alden remained .president and faculty. A mathematical pro- 
fessorship was founded at this time, by the local Western Star 
Lodge of Masons. Eight hundred dollars was subscribed for 
the purpose. 

1823, August — "The Catalogus Bibliothecae Collegii Alle- 
gheniensis", the ilrst catalogue of Allegheny College, contain- 
ing 139 pages was printed for distribution. 

1824 — A roof was finally placed over Bentley Hall,- and 
work commenced on the interior. 

1825 — John Reynolds succeeded Roger Alden as presi- 
dent of the Board of Trustees. 

1827 — The State Legislature granted Allegheny, four 
thousand dollars, to be paid in four installments. Up until 
this time the Commonwealth had given six thousand five hun- 
dred dollars to the college. It was exceedingly hard to gain 
appropriations from the state for educational purposes and the 
little college situated so far west found it doubly so. During 
this year the idea of changing to a Methodist institution was 
considered but it was not until 183 3 that it was linally agreed 
upon. 

Work 01 Bentley Hall was resumed. David Dick was given 



24 OLD ALLEGHENY 

the contract for finishing the east wing. But the college lacked 
support; it needed more substantial backing. A military 
school was suggested by Judge Shippen, who had succeeded 
John Reynolds as president of the Board of Trustees. 

1829, April 27 — In spite of the opposition of President 
Alden, and after considerable correspondence, Mr. James 
McKay was secured as superintendent of the new military 
school. Fortunately the proposed plan was not successful, 
and the old system was resumed. 

Dr. Reynell Coates, M.D., of Philadelphia, was secured as 
professor of Natural Philosophy and Chemistry, and Rev. 
David McKinney was made professor of Mathematics, each re- 
ceiving a salary of two hundred dollars a year. Dr. Coates 
practiced medicine along with his academic duties and Rev. 
McKinney .preached in a country church. Both instructors 
resigned at the close of the year. 

1830 — Joseph Morrison, Esq., became president of the 
Board of Trustees. 

November 20 — The Allegheny library was moved from the 
city Court House to Bentley Hall. 

1831 — Following previous investigation a committee was 
sent by the Board of Trustees to the Methodist Session of the 
Pittsburgh Conference asking their patronage. 

August 2 — The resignation of Timothy Alden followed the 
action of the Board. 

During his sixteen years of faithful service, Mr. Alden had 
received no remuneration from the college. Upon his request, 
the Board estimated his services at thirty-two hundred dollars. 

The value of the foundation laid by Timothy Alden for 
Allegheny College is inestimable. He gave the best years of 
his life to the cause which he had founded and fostered. The 
remainder of his life he spent in teaching and preaching. In 
1839 hi moved to the home of a daughter in Pittsburgh, dy- 
ing there a short time later, July 5. He was buried in the 
church yard at Sharpsburg, Pennsylvania. 

But the example set by Timothy Alden will live on for- 
ever and ever, as long as there is an Allegheny College. Every 
man graduated from Old Allegheny is a living monument to 
her first president. 

1831-33 — College closed. 



OLD ALLEGHENY 25 

PART II 

''Example is a motive of very prevailing force on the action 

of men.'' — Rogers. 

1833, July 17 — In res.ponse to an invitation from the 
Board of Trustees, the Pittsburgh Conference met in Mead- 
ville to inspect the property and equipment of Allegheny Col- 
lege. Bishop R. R. Roberts presided at the meeting. Martin 
Ruter, D.D., was proposed as president, Homer J. Clark, A.M., 
as vice-president, and Augustus Ruter as .professor. 

Dr. Martin Ruter was an ambitious, progressive, and com- 
petent leader of men. He was born in Charleston, Mass., in 
the year of 1785. His education was obtained chiefly through 
his own ambition and self-aid. At the age of sixteen he was 
made a preacher in the New York Conference. In 1804, he 
was stationed at Montreal as a missionary. In 1818, Mr. 
Ruter was elected as the first principal of the New Market, 
N. H., Academy of the New England Conference. His interest 
in the church and in education was always combined with the 
practical. His principal works as an author were, "A History 
of the Christian Church", and "A History of Martyrs", He 
was also the founder of the Western Methodist Book Concern, 
In 1828 he became president of Madison College, resigning in 
1832 to accept a church in Pittsburgh. Then the Pittsburgh 
Conference called upon him to become the president of Alle- 
gheny College. 

Final arrangements were made for the transfer of the col- 
lege to the Methodist control, under the general supervision 
of the Pittsburgh Annual Conference. Vacancies in the 
Board of Trustees were filled by nominations from the Pitts- 
burgh Conference. 

Reverend J. S. Barris was chosen to raise ten thousand 
dollars to found the Roberts Professorship. Bishop Roberts 
was a great favorite among the people of the northwestern 
area. He was one of the early settlers, and circuit preachers, 
later holding important pastorates in the east. He was elected 
to the office of Bishop in 18 16, filling the .place left vacant by 
the death of Francis Asbury. 

August 12 — "A Prospectus of Allegheny College" was pre- 



26 OLD ALLEGHENY 

pared by the Board cf Trustees. The non-sectarian principle 
of the college was set forth in it as follows: "The .public has 
been appraised by editorial notices in the public prints of this 
village, of the recent change which has taken place in the 
organization of Allegheny College. This institution is now 
under the patronage and general supervision of the Pittsburgh 
Annual Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church. The 
changes, however, which the institution has undergone, to 
place it in its new relation to the .public, are not designed to 
effect in the slightest degree, the liberal principles of its 
original organization, recognized in its charter. Though under 
the patronage of a particular religious denomination, it is not 
intended to be sectarian. This character is utterly disavowed. 
The Board of Trustees, as before, is still composed of literary 
gentlemen of different religious persausions. No particular 
Theological views will be permitted to influence any of the 
decisions of the Board of Trustees; and from their knowledge 
of the character of the gentlemen composing the Faculty, the 
.public may be assured, that no such views will be mingled 
with the general course of instruction adopted in the in- 
stitution." 

The preparatory department of the college opened in Sep- 
tember and the collegiate department in November under the 
supervision of Vice-President Clark. Dr. Ruter did not as- 
sume immediate control, but visited the college on the open- 
ing day in September to give the inaugural address. 

October 7 — In order to lessen the ex.pense connected with 
a college education, the Board of Trustees decided to adopt 
the Manual Labor System. Aid was asked of the state, and 
after the usual amount of red tape, Allegheny College was 
granted 58,000, providing a similar amount should be raised 
by the college. This amount was to be paid in four equal 
installments. 

A committee of the Trustees, appointed to investigate the 
system, published a report on the above date. The purpose 
stated in th re.port was twofold, "to preserve the health and 
morals of students", and to give a better understanding 
through practical work on the farm and in the shop. The 
development of the system was traced from the time of Pytha- 



OLD ALLEGHENY 2."] 

goras to the establishment of the Maine Wesleyan Seminary, 
and the later Oneida Institute. The estimated cost totaled 
"a round sum of ^20,000". The advantage to the community 
was pointed out — in that scientific farming and stock raising 
would be demonstrated. A postscript to the report stated 
that forty-two acres of land had been bought on credit, mak- 
ing a total of fifty-two acres of land available with which to 
begin the work. 

1834, June — Dr. Ruter accepted the active presidency of 
the college, at a salary of seven hundred dollars. Richard W. 
Louck, and W. H. Davis each received five hundred dollars, 
and composed the remaining faculty. 

September 25 — The tirst commencement of Allegheny 
College under the Methodist regime was held in the Mead- 
ville Court House. 

1835 — Commencement exercises were held in the red 
brick Presbyterian church. Four Seniors were graduated with 
the bachelor degree, and Rev. Nathanial West and Rev. Thomas 
Compton received their masters degree. 

At the Pittsburgh Conference in 1835, it was decided to 
make an increased effort for greater funds for the support of 
Allegheny College. A second endowment to be named the 
Asbury Professorship was started, and more assistance was 
asked from the state. This time Allegheny received a grant of 
$25,000 out of a $200,000 appropriation for colleges. 

1836, May 2 — The summer session opened with 89 stu- 
dents. Tuition for the twenty-two week term was $8.00 in the 
pre.paratory department, and $10.00 in the collegiate depart- 
ment. 

August 17 — Ninety Methodist preachers gathered at Bent- 
ley Hall under Bishop Soule, and organized the Erie Confer- 
ence. 

The Manual Labor System, which, it had been hoped, would 
bring such success to the college, had been a disappointment, 
and was largely abandoned. The general progress of the col- 
lege however was good. Three Faculty members had been 
added: James Reynolds, August W. Ruter, son of President 
Ruter, and William Burton. Professor Ruter remained at Alle- 
gheny for a short time, accepting a position at Indiana Uni- 



28 OLD ALLEGHENY 

versity. Bentley Hall had been finally completed and the state 
was beginning to turn a more generous hand toward the 
college. 

1837, March 28 — Rev Mathew Sim.pson, A.M., was ap- 
pointed professor of natural science. 

June 21 — A few years before, Dr. Ruter had given up the 
presidency of Madison College that he might devote his en- 
ergies to the ministry. Now that Allegheny seemed fairly on 
the road to success, he felt that he had fultlUed his mission, 
and in accordance with previous plans, Dr. Ruter resigned his 
office as president of Allegheny College, June 21, to accept 
his appointment as su.perintendent of the Methodist Mission 
in Texas. 

Five months from the time of his resignation at Allegheny 
he was working in the mission fields of Texas. His family 
had been left at Albany, Indiana, that they would not have to 
undergo the hardships of the frontier. For five months he 
worked incessantly, and plans were laid for a college at Ruter- 
ville, later to be South Western University. Overwork and 
exposure brought about his death on May 16, 1838.

1837, June 21 — Upon receiving the resignation of Dr. 
Martin Ruter, the Board of Trustees elected Vice-President 
Homer J. Clark to be the third president of Allegheny College. 

Reverend Homer J. Clark was born at Mount Holly, 
Vt., in 1803. He was licensed as a preacher in the Ohio 
Conference when but a boy. In 1825 he left the ministry to 
work his way through Ohio University, and graduated with 
honors four years later. He refused an offer to become in- 
structor in the university and accepted an assistant pastorate 
in Pittsburgh, later becoming the traveling agent of Madison 
College. In 183 3, he was given his Masters degree by his 
Alma Mater, and in 183 7 he received the degree of Doctor of 
Divinity from Transylvania. In 183 3 he became .pastor of the 
Meadville Methodist Church, and vice-president of Allegheny 
College. 



OLD ALLEGHENY 29 

The Faculty now consisted of Professor Matthew Simpson, 
vice-president, William M. Burton, instructor in Mathematics, 
and George W. Clark, '25, instructor of Greek and Latin 
Languages. 

September 18 — There were live members in the graduat- 
ing class. 

1838 — Realizing the need of immediate financial assistance, 
on account of the slow payment of subscriptions, the Board 
petitioned the state for another appropriation. A grant of 
$1,000 a year, for ten years, was made to several colleges at 
this time, and Allegheny was numbered among them. An at- 
tempt to raise an additional $20,000 endowment failed. 

November 5 — A department of engineering was added to 
the curriculum. 

1839 — Some faculty changes were necessitated by the 
resignation of Vice-President Matthew Simpson and Professor 
William Burton. Mr. R. T. P. Allen, from West Point, became 
instructor of road construction and engineering, and John 
Barker, of Genesee Wesleyan, became vice-president of the 
college. 

In spite of all that could be done the college continued to 
run in debt. It was proposed to turn one-half of the John 
Wesley Centenary Celebration Funds over to Allegheny, but 
nothing materialized. 

1840 — A side light is thrown on these troublesome years 
by a written oath dated October 12, 1840, in which the stu- 
dents of Allegheny College attested their faith in the laws of 
the college and declared upon their honor, "that we do 
acquiesce therein, and will do the utmost of power to obey 
therein". The condition of the times had its effect upon the 
student life and discipline. Class attendance became lax, and 
the roll call was instituted. It seems that this method recom- 
mended by the Board of Trustees is not as binding today, as 
it was three-quarters of a century ago. The secretaries' notes 
given into the hands of the college by Charles A. Martin, of 
Greencastle, Ind., indicate a very effective .penalty. Pupils 
who did not make "public confession" were "severely flogged" 
and compelled to make good their misdemeanors. The letter 
of Mr. Martin read, "If you have any trouble with the matter 



30 OLD ALLEGHENY 

of 'discipline' at Allegheny, I recommend the old method, 
noted under date of February 3, 1841". 

The scientific course leading to the degree of Bachelor of 
Science was introduced. 

1841 — The attendance of this year totaled one hundred 
and hfty-seven, in the two departments. The Rev. Moses Crow, 
A.B., was principal of the preparatory department, and on the 
resignation of Professor Allen, Rev. Calvin Kingsley, '41, be- 
came professor of Mathematics, Rev. Charles A. Doering 
taught German, and Mons. Collier was secured to teach French. 

1842 — The Unitarian Theological School was founded with 
Rev. R. P. Stebbins as its first -president. 

1843-45 — The college was practically closed due to the 
financial stringency. 

In 1844, the state act of 1838 was discontinued, thus cut- 
ting off the yearly appropriation for Allegheny. 

A new plan was soon forthcoming from President Clark. 
It was to be called the "Perpetual Scholarship Plan". Cer- 
tificates of Scholarship were to be sold to the public at twenty- 
five dollars, to be gO(~)d forever in Allegheny College, or any 
other college under the patronage of the Pittsburgh-Erie Con- 
ference. One hundred thousand dollars was to be raised, the 
fund to be controlled by two Centenary Boards. The cam- 
•paign opened in September, 1844, and by July 30, 184 5, 
ninety thousand dollars had been pledged. Of this amount, 
sixty thousand was finally collected. An attempt was made to 
begin anew the Manual Labor System, but it, like the first at- 
tempt, never materialized. The college re-opened in 184 5, 
under the old system. It was proposed to open under the new 
plan the following year. 

Joseph Morrison, Esq., resigned as president of the Board 
oi Trustees, and the Hon. David Derickson was elected to 
succeed him. 

1846, April 6 — Allegheny College opened under the new 
Perpetual Scholarship Plan. Contrary to expectations, only 
150 students made application for admittance. Faculty changes 
this year were: Rev. George W. Clark, professor of Latin and 
Greek Languages and Classical Literature, was advanced to 
the vice-presidency. Jonathan Hammett, '39, accepted the 



OLD ALLEGHENY 3I 

Latin professorship, and Lorenzo D. Williams tilled the chair 
of Natural Sciences. 

1847 — The year o-pened with a record attendance of over 
two hundred students. Ten students were given their degree 
at graduation, and T. J. Fox Alden was elected president of 
the first Allegheny College Alumni Association. 

November 20 — 111 health brought about the resignation of 
the third president of Allegheny College. After spending two 
years on a farm, Dr. Clark removed to Pittsburgh where he 
accepted a church pastorate. During the years 1852-56 he 
was editor of the Advocate. For several years he served as 
presiding elder, receiving a pension in 1864. His death oc- 
curred September 24, 1875, and he was buried near his home- 
stead in Ohio. 

December 2 — The Trustees voted to erect a new building. 

PART IV 

''Rare benevole^ice, the minister of God-" — Carlyle. 

1848, February 12 — Dr. John Barker was chosen as the 
fourth president of Allegheny College. 

Mr. Barker was born in Foggathrope, East Ridgeway, York- 
shire, England, March 17, 181 3. When he was three years old, 
his family moved to New York. In 183 2, he graduated from 
Geneva, now Hobart College, and in 1839 he came from Gene- 
see Wesleyan to Allegheny College, acting in the ca.pacity of 
vice-president. In 1846, he was called to Transylvania Uni- 
versity where he remained until the following year when he 
was recalled to Allegheny College to become its president. 
Both Transylvania and Washington and Jefferson honored him 
with the degree of Doctor of Divinity. 

1849, October 30 — The attendance was increasing steadily, 
and a campaign was begun to raise money for the new build- 
ing, which was to be named Ruter Hall. 

1850 — A record was established by a total attendance of 
over three hundred. Many, however, did not complete their 
course and graduation classes averaged between fifteen and 
twenty-five students. 

Action was begun to obtain a second college building, to 



32 OLD ALLEGHENY 

be named Ruter Hall. The large attendance necessitated in- 
creased accommodations. As usual, the citizens of Meadville 
started the ball rolling with an initial subscription of twenty- 
five hundred dollars. The remainder was to be raised by pub- 
lishing a book of original sermons. The book contained thirty- 
two sermons contributed by prominent ministers of the patron- 
izing conferences. 

In May, the book was made ready for sale, and in two 
years time sixteen hundred dollars was secured. 

April 27 — Professor Hamnett opened a subscription list 
for funds to lay a plank walk from the Diamond to the Campus. 

1852, April 27 — Work on the new building was well un- 
der way, and attendance continued to increase. Two hun- 
died and twenty-live students were enrolled and twenty of 
these were graduated. 

1853, June — Fourteen students were graduated from the 
college, and plans were set on foot for the addition of a Bibli- 
cal department. 

1854 — Thirteen thousand dollars of the intended fifteen 
thousand was subscribed toward the new Biblical chair. The 
largest donor was Allen Kramer, Esq., of Pittsburgh, and the 
new chair was named the Kramer Professorship of Hebrew 
and Biblical Literature. 

April 12 — Ruter Hall was finally completed. Dr. Cook of 
Pittsburgh, gave the dedicatory address on "Perfection". 
The number of graduates dropped to twelve at the commence- 
ment exercises in June. 

A few changes in the faculty again took place in 1854; 
vice president. Professor G. W. Clarke resigned, and Alexander 
Martin succeeded him; Calvin Kingsley became vice-president. 

1855 — The courses in biblical study were first begun, 

1856 — The first alumni gathering in the history of the col- 
lege took place at commencement. Nineteen graduates were 
given their diplomas. 

1857 — The number of graduates increased to twenty-two. 

1858 — In this year the number increased to twenty-eight, 
the largest graduating class up to that time. 

May 3 — The day was set aside by Dr. Barker, for the plant- 
ing of trees, and campus improvements. 



OLD ALLEGHENY 33 

1860, February 25 — A mantle of gloom was thrown over 
the college caused by the sudden death of the president, Dr. 
Barker. He was survived by three children and his second wife. 

Although poor in earthly treasures, the true wealth of Dr. 
Barker was inestimable, so well had he garnered the love and 
esteem of his friends. Generosity was indeed his failing. 

Plans were made at once, to raise a fund with which to 
build the Barker Memorial Residence. In a very short time 
twelve hundred dollars was secured and a home was built for 
the Barker family. Dr. Williams was appointed to conduct 
the aflfairs of the college until a president could be chosen.

"Even in war, moral power is to physical as three parts out 
of four'' — Napoleon I. 

1860, October — It was announced that the fifth presi- 
dent of Allegheny College would be Rev. George Loomis, D.D, 

Dr. Loomis was born at Attica, N. Y., June 30, I8l7. He 
worked his way through Genesee Wesleyan Seminary at 
Lima, N. Y., and later graduated from Wesleyan University in 
Connecticut. In 1844, he became principal of the seminary, 
resigning in 184 7 to become chaplain of the American Sea- 
man's Friend Society at Canton, China. He returned to Amer- 
ica in 1852 to acce.pt the presidency of the Wesleyan Female 
College at Wilmington, Del., which office he occupied for six 
years, 

1861, January 22 — Dr. Loomis was inaugurated as presi- 
dent of Allegheny College. The responsibility of conducting 
Allegheny through the perils of the Civil War period rested 
upon his broad shoulders. 

April 12 — James Stubbs unfurled the flag from the mast 
of Bentley. On the same day seventy-eight loyal Alleghen- 
ians responded to the call for volunteers. The college com- 
pany was organized: Ira Ayer, captain; Sion B Smith, first 
lieutenant; Oscar Henning, German instructor, second lieu- 
tenant, and George H. Norris, third lieutenant. 

The Meadville Volunteers had been formed with S. B. Dick, 
'58, ca.ptain; G. H. Bemus, first lieutenant, and T. R. Ken- 
nedy, '5 5, second lieutenant. 



34 OLD ALLEGHENY 

April 26 — A flag was presented to the college company by 
the ladies of Meadville. 

May 2 — The Meadville Volunteers left for Camp Wilkins. 
However, before they had reached Pittsburgh the quota of 
7 5,000 had been filled. Later, on May 16, the company was 
enlisted for three years in the Pennsylvania Reserve Volunteer 
Corps. 

May 24 — Governor Curtin accepted the college company, 
later oflicially known as Company 1, 3 9th Regiment, lOth Re- 
serve, Pennsylvania Volunteers. 

On June 11, active duty orders were received and they 
left Meadville by boat, enroute for Camp Wright, near Pitts- 
burgh. A short time later they were mustered into the regu- 
lar army, and were assigned to the 3rd Brigade of the Army 
of the Potomac under Brig. Gen. E. O. C. Ord. 

Seiptember — Company I was not the only company in 
which Allegheny College was represented. Company B, of 
the "Fighting Eighteenth" numbered five Alleghenians in its 
ranks. They were later joined to the 3rd Division, Cavalry 
Corps, of the Army of the Potomac, under General E. S. Farns- 
worth, at the battle of Gettysburg. 

December 10 — Company I was tirst placed under fire at 
the battle of Dranesville. From that time on it took part in 
every battle of the Army of the Potomac except the battle of 
Chancelorsville. 

1863, July 2 — Company I occupied the low ground be- 
tween Little Round Top and Round Top. Company B, with 
the 3rd Division Cavalry Corps, held Law's Infantry from 
supporting General Pickett's oflrensive. 

The invasion of northern territory by General Lee, 
brought the formation of Company K, and the enlistment of 
the 58th Regiment from the vicinity of Meadville. They were 
used in chasing the Confederates from Ohio, their enlistment 
expiring in three months. 

Company K of the l50th Regiment, P. V., enlisted from 
Crawford county, served for two years as bodyguard for Presi- 
dent Lincoln. 

1864, June 11 — After three years of service, and nearly 
continuous action Company I was mustered out of service. 



OLD ALLEGHENY 35 

During the war Company I had lost: killed and mortally 
wounded, 26; wounded, 36; died, 8; discharged for disabil- 
ity, 25. 

In this brief sketch of Old Allegheny, it is impossible to 
record the individual service and bravery of her .patriots who 
served in the Civil War. It will suffice to say that Allegheny 
is proud of her sons, for their service performed in the critical 
period of our national existence. 

1865, April 9 — General Lee surrendered to General Grant 
at the Appomatox Court House, Virginia. 

Now that the war was over, attention was again turned to 
the academic life of the college. The scientific course was re- 
established, after years of neglect, mainly through the efforts 
of Jeremiah Tingley. At this time French and German were 
added to the classical curriculum and a professorship was es- 
tablished for modern languages. George T. Comfort was se- 
cured to till the chair. 

Culver Hall was erected at a cost of $30,000 through the 
generosity of Mr. Charles Culver of Oil City. The building 
was to be used as a dormitory and boarding house for men. 
Three buildings now graced the campus. In s.pite of the later 
unfortunate financial failure of Mr. Culver, he still stands as 
a loyal benefactor of Allegheny College. Through the activ- 
ity and persistence of Dr. Loomis, further donations were re- 
ceived and the college once more resumed its progressive 
trend. 

1866 — Some financial aid came in the way of a donation 
from the Centenary Celebraticn of American Methodists. Dr. 
loomis was continually looking after the financial welfare of 
the college. Twenty thousand dollars was pledged through in- 
dividual donors. 

June 27 — The fiftieth anniversary of the college was cele- 
brated at commencement. 

1867 — The first college baseball team played a town team. 

1868-70 — Dr. Loomis retired from his teaching duties due 
to ill heath and overwork. 

In 1868, Mr. Alexander Bradley, of Pittsburgh, -established 
the Bradley chair of Latin Languages and Literature. 

On July 29, of the same year, the Stone Church was dedi- 



36 OLD ALLEGHENY 

cated, on the .present site, the ground was donated by Mr. 
Culver. Dr. Hamnett directed the erection of the building. 

1870, April 6 — Bishop Kingsley, one of Allegheny's noblest 
men, died in Beyrout, Syria. 

June 23 — A resolution was passed by the Board of Trus- 
tees to admit women to the college. Miss Mary Darrow of 
Kinsman, Ohio; Miss Almira Marstellar, of Meadville, and Miss 
Adelle Williams, entered with the freshmen class of that year, 
the first women students of Allegheny College. 

1871 — The college was undergoing a severe strain, the 
after-effect of the Civil War. Interest in Allegheny seemed to 
have lapsed, and the attendance dropped below the one hun- 
dred mark. Dr. William Hunter had resigned from the Biblical 
Department, and now Professor George T. Comfort resigned. 
Charles Reed was secured to fill his place. 

1872 — There were eighty-one students in attendance, the 
lowest point reached since 1833. 

1873, June 26 — The first woman graduate, Ella P. Nash, 
was given her diploma with the class of '73. 

1874, April 22 — Dr. Loomis resigned his office as presi- 
dent of Allegheny College. He had piloted Allegheny through 
one of the most difficult periods of her existence. Dr. Ham- 
nett became acting president, at the same time filling the chair 
of mathematics. George W. Haskins, '64, was secured for the 
Latin chair. 

Mr. Alexander Bradley succeeded Hon. David Derickson, as 
president of the Board of Trustees. 

June 24 — The first general reunion of the Alumni took 
place. The class reported by representatives, and Hon. David 
Derickson, sole survivor of the class of 1820 led the list. 

PART VI 

''The greatest of all Messiiigs, as it is the most ennobling of 
all privileges, is to be indeed a Christian" — ^Coleridge. 

1875, February 15 — Rev. Lucius Halen Bugbee, D.D., presi- 
dent of the Wesleyan Female College, was elected as the fifth 
Allegheny president. 

Dr. Bugbee was born at Gowanda, N. Y. From 1850-53 
he attended Genesse Wesleyan Seminary at Lima, attending Am- 



OLD ALLEGHENY 37 

herst College for his senior year; 1854-55 he served as a pro- 
fessor in Coo.perstcwn Female College; 185 5-5 7 he was in 
business, at the same time becoming an ordained deacon and 
elder in the Methodist church; 1856 he was admitted to the 
Upper Iowa Conference; 1857-60, principal of the Fayette 
Seminary; 1860, pastor of Chicago church; 1865-68, presi- 
dent of Northwestern Female College at Evanston, 111.; 1868-7 5,

president of Allegheny College. 

June 23 — The inauguration of Dr. Bugbee took place at 
the Stone Church. 

November 30 — Ruter Hall was rededicated after extensive 
improvements. Bentley Hall also received new equipment. 

1877 — The "Cam.pus" was established in this year. 

February 22 — The tirst celebration of Washington's birth- 
day was held with music, poems and orations. 

The preparatory course was enlarged, and general progress 
took place. Instruction in military tactics was begun in the 
college. A military professorship was established under Lieu- 
tenant Hess, a Civil War veteran. 

Faculty changes were: Dr. Hyde advanced to the course 
in Hebrew and Greek Literature, and Professor Reed placed in 
charge of Greek, Latin, and modern languages. New in- 
structors, W. G. Williams, '7 5, in modern languages, and J. 
H. Montgomery, ^11, in science, were secured. 

At the quadrennial alumni reunion, the project for branch 
alumni associations in every large city was first brought to 
attention. 

Twelve students were graduated at commencement. 

1878, September 20 — The fall term opened with over two 
hundred students in attendance. 

1879, July 5 — Marcus Hulings agreed to give $5000, for 
the erection of a girls' dormitory, providing, the trustees 
would raise a like amount. 

June 25 — The cornerstone of Hulings Hall was laid. Miss 
Ida Tarbell, '80, expressed the appreciation of the women 
students. 

1880 — Hulings Hall was opened under the supervision of 
Miss Harriet Linn, '80 (Mrs. R. C. Beebe). 



38 OLD ALLEGHENY 

Lieutenant George Webster succeeded Lieutenant Hess as 
military instructor. The college seemed to be- getting on its 
feet now, both financially and scholastically, graduating classes 
numbered between fifteen and twenty-live, and college spirit 
began to assert itself. The college fee was raised to fcrty-live 
dollars, and a new ^100,000 endowment campaign was started. 
There were twenty-one graduates on June 22, the largest num- 
ber since i860. 

1881 — Dr. Bugbee's health began to fail and he ceased 
active work. 

1882, January 26 — The day was set aside as a day of 
prayer for colleges. 

June 28 — Dr. Bugbee resigned his office of president of Alle- 
gheny College. His death occurred July 28, 1883. 

One of the first requisites of a college president is that he 
set an exam.pie to the students. Dr. Bugbee won the love and 
esteem of every one interested in the welfare of the college 
by his untiring devotion to her cause. One more rung had 
been added to Allegheny's ladder. Marked progress had been 
made in every department during the presidency of Dr. Bugbee. 

Several changes were made in the faculty: Dr. Hamnett 
became acting president, Milton P. Gclf, '5 8, took charge of 
mathematics, and Professor Williams resigned the chair of 
modern languages. 

December 8 — Culver Hall burned to the ground.

''A generous soul is sunshine to the mind" — Sir Robert Howard 

1883, April 14 — Rev. David H. Wheeler, D.D., LL.D., be- 
came the sixth president of Allegheny. 

June 27 — The inauguration ceremonies were held in the 
Stone M. E. Church. 

Dr. Wheeler was born in Ithaca, N. Y., November 18, 1829. 
In 1846 his family moved to Illinois, and he entered the Rock 
River Seminary. After his graduation he taught, and engaged 
in journalism. From 185 7-61 he was professor of Greek at 



OLD ALLEGHENY 39 

Cornell College, Iowa, later he became U. S. Consul at Ge- 
neva Switzerland. In 1864 he returned to America to serve as 
a professor in Northwestern University; 1872-83, he was en- 
gaged in editorial work. 

Dr. Wheeler far surpassed any of the former executives 
of Allegheny College in literary ability and editorial work done. 
He had published many books and was a translator of some 
note. 

1884 — More faculty changes took .place: Dr. M. B. GoflF 
and Dr. A. B. Hyde resigned and Prof. J. H. Montgomery was 
instructor in mathematics for the time being; Rev. W. G. Wil- 
liams returned to teach ethics; Rev. Napthali Luccock was 
appointed to the chair of mathematics; and A. W. Newlin, '84, 
and Miss Louise McClintock, '11, as dean of Hulings Hall, 
were added to the staff. Dr. Hamnett was made librarian after 
forty years of active service, and Prof. G. W. Haskins became 
vice-president. 

1886 — A complete readjustment in the college by the 
Board of Control and the Trustees. All the faculty resigned 
but the president. 

The Meadville Commercial College, and the Meadville Con- 
servatory of Music were atfiliated. A post-graduate depart- 
ment was introduced. 

Dr. S. E. Stillwell accepted the place in the engineering de- 
•partment left vacant by the resignation of Professor Thatcher. 
Some others were not asked to return after, the readjustment. 
During the fall term, enthusiasm revived, and the affairs of the 
college were running smoother than ever. 

1887, February — Due to ill health. Dr. Wheeler was forced 
to turn over the executive duties to Professor Williams, who 
became the eighth president of Allegheny College, June 26, 
1888. Dr. Wheeler served as professor of Greek and English. 

Rev. Wilbur Garretson Williams, D.D., was born at Plain- 
field, Ohio, October 9, 185 2. He entered Allegheny College 
as a sophomore, in 1872, having attended Washington and 
Jefferson College his freshman year. After graduation in 
1875, he held a professorship in Lake Shore Seminary; 1776, 
he preached at Erie; 187 7, he returned to Allegheny to the 
chair of modern languages; 1882-84, preached at Jamestown, 



40 OLDALLEGHENY 

N. Y.; 1884-85, principal of the Genesee Wesleyan Seminary, 
and later, returned again to Allegheny to teach ethics; 1888, 
he became president. 

The efforts of Dr. Williams led towards greater finances 
and an extended building campaign; many improvements were 
made. 

1889 — Failure of the Board of Control and the Trustees, to 
back up the request of Dr. Williams' that a certain Dr. Still- 
well, professor of mathematics, be dismissed, brought the res- 
ignation of Dr. Williams. 

June — Dr. Wheeler accepted the office of president, to the 
satisfaction of every one, and confidence in the administra- 
tion was at once restored. 

Dr. J. W. Thomas was appointed to the chair of modern 
languages. Dr. Trueman was appointed to the Bradley Pro- 
fessorship of Greek and Latin and Prof. J. C. Fields, Ph.D., to 
the department of mathematics. Prof. W. A. Elliott, '89, suc- 
ceeded Rev. J. H. Miller as principal of the preparatory school. 
Miss Grace Foster was made dean of women, and instructor 
in history. These new appointments to the faculty marked 
the change to especially trained teachers. Prof. W. T. Dutton 
was secured to take charge of civil engineering, and Dr. Still- 
well, mathematics; W. S. Twinning, '88, gained his professor- 
ship and Lt. J. K. Cree was assigned to Allegheny for military 
duty, and physical exercise, 

1890 — Forty-three students were graduated at commence- 
ment, a marked increase. 

1891, May — Allegheny took part in her first field meet, 
held at Pittsburgh, Pa. Athletics were gaining in favor, base-

spiration. Over three-quarters of a century had passed since 
the early struggle for the founding of Allegheny College, 

During that time hundreds of men had gone forth from 
her halls of learning, filled and inspired by the s.pirit of her 
masters. These were the men who would rally to the support 
of their Alma Mater in the years to come, the past three de- 
cades. "The blossoms of the present bear the fruit of the 
future,"

trol nominating the trustees, the Pittsburgh and Erie Confer- 
ences, and alumni each nominated eight. The Erie Confer- 
ence did not agree to the change until l9ii. The plan was

ferences were to withdraw. Twenty-four trustees were to be 
elected for four years, six retiring every year, and twenty-three 
were jointly elected as life members. 



48 OLD ALLEGHENY 

June — An added feature of the centennial program was 
to be the completion of an additional three hundred thousand 
dollars endowment campaign. Nearly one-third of this amount 
was secured, and fifty thousand dollars was pledged by the

.plete the campaign due to the financial stringency of the times. 

Under the new system of election, twelve new trustees 
were elected to the board. 

The preparatory school was discontinued and the depart- 
ment of chemistry moved from Ruter to Alden Hall. 

October 5 — Montgomery Field was opened by Dr. Wat- 
son Savage, director of the Pittsburgh Athletic Association.

more Chicago property, making a total of one hundred thou- 
sand dollars.

constantly turned to the progress of the endowment campaign. 
Dr. Crawford, continually on the road, strove to maintain an 
average s'-bscription of $1000 a day.

OLD ALLEGHENY 49 

Three outstanding features of the campaign were pointed 
out by Dr. Crawford in his address to the student body. They 
were: first, the generous gift of Mrs. Sarah B. Cochran; sec- 
ond, the liberality of the citizens of Meadville; third, the sup- 
port of the student body. 

From in endowment of #140,000 in 1893, Allegheny had 
now reached the astounding figure of $1,025,000 which gave 
the college fifteenth place among the colleges of the country,

Crawford for having set Allegheny College at last on a sound 
financial footing.

to four hundred, also to adopt the old original Allegheny seal.

first diploma given to a graduate of Allegheny College, Timothy 
John Fox Alden, nephew of Timothy Alden, the founder. 

Attendance had increased from three hundred and twenty- 
two to four hundred. The need for greater accommodations 
was expressed in a plea to the General Educational Board, which 
resulted in a provisional fifty thousand dollar donation, on con- 
dition that the college raised one hundred and fifty thousand 
dollars in a limited time. The term fee was increased from 
seventy-five dollars to one hundred dollars. 

The year of I9l3 was marked by several noteworthy 
events: Allegheny was given membership in the Carnegie Edu- 
cational Foundation, the purpose of which is to provide for 
aged professors; the honorary fraternity of Delta Sigma Rho 
was installed. The commencement in June marked the nine- 
ty-eighth anniversary of the college, and the twentieth anni- 
versary of President Crawford's regime. He was granted a 
seven weeks' leave of absence during the fall term, which he 
and Mrs. Crawford s.pent in Europe. 

1914, January — The Board of Trustees authorized the 



50 OLD ALLEGHENY

student vote to take the place of Faculty supervision. The 
largest class ever graduated from Allegheny College received 
diplomas in June. The class of '14 numbered seventy-nine. 

September — Several changes had taken place in the Faculty 
in the past two years. Dr. Gilbert G. Benjamin, Dr. Robert S. 
Breed, and Dr. Irwin R. Beiler had resigned. Dr. Chester A. 
Darling became head of the biology department in place of Dr. 
Breed, and Prof. Charles E. Hammett was secured as physical 
director and coach of Athletics. In 19 1 4, Dr. Frederic G. 
Henke became acting .professor of philosophy and Dr. W. H. 
Wood, acting professor of English Bible. Other new members 
of the Faculty were: Dr. W. C. Heffener, Professors Robert C. 
Ward, Robert V. Conant, and Daniel H. G. Matthaei. Profes- 
sor Stanley S. Swartley, of the English department, Dr. O. P. 
Akers, of the department of mathematics, and Miss Edith 
Rowley, librarian, returned from leave of absence spent abroad. 
The sudden death cf Professor William Tenney Dutton, head 
of the department of Mathematics and Engineering, on March 
19, I9l4, came as a sorrowful shock to the college, and the 
community. 

November — Campus improvements to the extent of 
twenty-five thousand dollars were begun, including the instal- 
lation of the new heating plant and drainage system. 

1915, January 14 — One of the hardest blows which Alle- 
gheny College has had to bear, came when tire totally destroyed 
the Alden Hall of Chemistry, with a loss of fifteen thousand 
dollars. Insurance to the amount of ten thousand dollars was 
carried on the building. The Trustees at once voted one 
thousand dollars to be used in defraying the immediate needs 
in equipment, and the department resumed its work in Wil- 
cox Hall of Physics. 

January 29 — The Board of Trustees voted to expend one 
hundred and fifteen thousand dollars for a new chemistry 
building and equipment, and for the rebuilding of Alden Hall. 



OLD ALLEGHENY 5I 

Mr. Andrew Carnegie made the plan possible by a donation of 
forty thousand dollars, on condition that the Trustees should 
raise an additional twenty thousand. 

May 11 — Ground was broken for the Carnegie Hall of 
Chemistry. 

1915, June — Dr. Jeremiah Tingley who served Allegheny 
so faithfully as head of the Science department during the 
years 1865-88, died at his heme in Pittsburgh. He was tit- 
tingly termed the "dean of Pennsylvania educators". 

June 19-24 — Plans for the celebration of the one hun- 
dredth anniversary of the founding of Allegheny College had 
long been under way. Numerous committees appointed since 
1909, had been carefully completing their work. Urgent in- 
vitations had been sent to all Alumni, to return "for the great- 
est celebration in the history of Allegheny College". The 
Alumni Association, as their gift to the celebration, .planned 
to hold a pageant the like of which had never been surpassed 
in beauty and completeness. Professor George P. Baker, pro- 
fessor of Dramatic Literature in Harvard University, and the 
foremost of American Pageant Masters, had been secured to 
write and direct the pageant. He was assisted by P. F. Ren- 
iers, the music being arranged and conducted by Mr. Charles 
Roepper, of Boston. A stretch of ground directly in front of 
Bentley Hall was leveled and sodded for a stage in 19 14, in 
preparation for the celebration. For some time preceding the 
.presentation of the pageant. Professor Baker had been work- 
ing incessantly on the various parts. The personnel was 
made up chiefly of four hundred undergraduates, and young 
people of the community. E. M. Hickman, '16, took the part 
of Timothy Alden most acceptably. 

The pageant depicted the pioneer life at the time when 
George Washington made his first tri.p through northwestern 
Pennsylvania, the trials of the early founders of Meadville, the 
coming of Timothy Alden and the founding of Allegheny Col- 
lege, the transfer to Methodist control, and the subsequent 
steps of development through the Civil War Period. The 
years following the Civil War, up to, and including the year 
1915, were represented by symbolic figures. The basis of the 



:52 OLD ALLEGHENY 

theme was derived from the Hebrew inscription on the old 
college seal, "The desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose". 
Other interesting and very worthwhile features of the cen- 
tennial week were the presentation of an alumni register by 
Professor Ross, and the announcement that the Allegheny Col- 
lege history under the title of "Allegheny, a Century of Edu- 
cation", written by Dr. Ernest Ashton Smith, professor of 
History, had been completed and was in the hands of the 
printer.

War, pledging the unanimous support of the Allegheny stu- 
dents and Faculty if war should be declared.

lief. Liberty Loans, and other worthy causes. Enlistments 
continued and on December 18, President Crawford left Alle- 
gheny for a few months foreign service with the Y. M. C. A. 
Dr. Camden M. Cobern was appointed by the Board of Trus- 
tees to till the otlice of president during his absence. Arthur

1918, January — At a meeting of the College Presidents' 
Association of Pennsylvania, held in Harrisburg, a set of reso- 
lutions was made, to be carried out by every member of the 
association. The object was to reduce college expense to a 
minimum during the year. 

February 11 — Bentley Hall came very near being destroyed 
by a fire which broke out in the basement of the old build- 
ing. The prom.pt action of the student body, and the Mead- 
ville Fire Department saved the building, and little loss was 
sustained. 

On February 21, the Student Senate presented the college 
with a large service flag, the stars on the flag representing only 
men of the class of '17, or undergraduates, who had left the 
college to enter the service of their country. 

April 30 — Dr. Crawford returned to the United States, 
after serving four and one-half months with the Y. M. C. A. 
in France. He immediately assumed control of affairs and Dr. 
Cobern returned to his place in the faculty. 

Dr. Charles E. Hammett, physical director of the college, 
was granted a leave of absence for one year, or the duration 
of the war, in order that he might go to France, immediately 
after commencement, to instruct the soldiers in athletics. 



56 OLD ALLEGHENY 

Professor George Hucker left Allegheny to take up gov- 
ernment work at the University of Nebraska. The chair of 
German was formally and emphatically abolished from the cur- 
riculum. A resolution was passed for the duration of the war, 
which .provided for the graduation of the students who had 
taken three years of the regular college course, and two sum- 
mer school courses. Professor C. F. Ross was made registrar 
of the college. 

The commencement exercises of this year marked the 
twenty-fifth year of Dr. Crawford's regime in Allegheny Col- 
lege, and the one hundred and third anniversary of her found- 
ing. 

November 11 — Armistice Day was celebrated by the col- 
lege with appropriate exercises, and an address by Professor 
C. E. Hammett. 

November 26 — By the order of the War Department every 
S. A. T. C. unit in the live hundred colleges and universities 
of the United States was ordered to disband. Demobilization 
was to be completed not later than December 21. The last 
man was discharged at Allegheny College on December 13. 

1919, February — A service flag consisting of thirteen gold 
stars, was presented to the college by the student body, in 
memory of the thirteen men who had sacrificed their lives in 
order that German "Kultur" might be crushed forever. 

The freshmen enrollment for the second semester num- 
bered one hundred and eighty-eight, the largest class ever 
entered. 

Allegheny College was the first to be added to the Carnegie 
Foundation list of Associated Institutions under the new plan 
of Contributory Annuity. 

The Alumni Bi-Monthly, a periodical of Alumni news, was 
founded by Meadville Alumni. 

April 30 — Mr. Arthur W. Thompson, .president of the 
Board of Trustees, placed before the student body, a plan for 
the building of a new gymnasium. The plan was to raise 
forty thousand dollars, of which amount the student body was 
to raise ten thousand. 

May 17 — The first Junior Promenade in Allegheny College, 



OLD ALLEGHENY 57 

was given in the gymnasium, and marked tlie beginning of a 
new social era. 

October 1 — Work was begun raising tlie necessary funds 
for the new building program, and the remodeling of Hulings 
Hall and tearing down of the old gymnasium was started. The 
cost of the new building was now estimated at seventy-five 
thousand dollars over the original estimate. 

The fall term opened with a larger enrollment than ever; 
attendance was limited to live hundred. The need for greater 
facilities was doubly emphasized. An influx of men from the 
service, together with the nation-wide realization of the value 
of a college education, accounts for the great increase of at- 
tendance. Social Service, Appreciation of Art, and Sociology 
were added to the already nearly com.plete curriculum. 

November 24 — Laying of the cornerstone of the new gym- 
nasium. 

A great number of Faculty changes took place during the 
year. Many new instructors were needed for the increasing 
attendance. They were as follows: 

C. F. Ross, A.M., Dean of Men, Registrar, and Bradley 
Professor of Latin Language and Literature. 

H. W. Church, A.B., A.M., Ph.D., professor of Romance 
Language and Literature. 

B. C. Rodick, A.B., A. M., acting professor of History and 
Political Science. 

H. W. Peck, A.B., A.M., Ph.D., acting professor of Eco- 
nomics. 

H. W. Gardiner, A.B., A.M., assistant professor of History 
and Political Science. 

K. F. Bascom, A.B., instructor in Biology and Geology. 

Gerald Barnes, A.B., assistant coach. 

S. L. Maxwell, A.B., S.T.B., secretary of the Y. M. C. A. 
and director of Religious Activities. 

1920, January 15 — President Crawford tendered his resig- 
nation to the Board of Trustees, at the semi-annual meeting 
in Pittsburgh, to take eflfect June 30, 1920. 

Dr. William H. Crawford was elected president of Allegheny 
College July 26, 1893. He was formally inaugurated on the 
eighteenth of October, and continued in the service of the 



58 OLD ALLEGHENY 

college for twenty-seven years. Under his supervision, seven 
new buildings were added, and the college was enlarged in 
many ways. He secured with the aid of the Alumni, a large 
endowment, and gained for Allegheny a prominent place among 
the foremost colleges of the country. President Crawford 
was a great financier. In I9l5, a beautiful centennial was 
conducted. At the end of 1920 he would have reached the 
age when, according to the standard set by the Carnegie 
Foundation for the advancement of teaching, college presi- 
dents, as well as college .professors are permitted to retire 
from active service, and give place to younger men. 

In answer to a petition from the student body, the Board 
granted five thousand dollars for the promotion of athletics. 
An additional five thousand for equipment, and ten thousand 
dollars was appropriated for an increase of professors' sal- 
aries, with the minimum fixed at three thousand dollars a 
year. The tuition fee was raised to two hundred dollars. 

May 5 — Dr. Camden M. Cobern, '76, after a short illness, 
died at Battle Creek Sanitarium. Dr. Cobern returned to 
Allegheny in 1906 to occupy the James M. Thoburn professor- 
ship of English Bible and Philosophy of Religion. He was a 
noted authority and author on Biblical, and Archaeological 
research work. During the late war Dr. Cobern served both 
at home and abroad with the Y. M. C. A. He was, no doubt, 
the most widely known man ever on the Faculty of Allegheny 
College. 

PART IX 

''Education begins the gentleman, hut reading, good com- 
pany, and reflection finish him.'' — Locke. 

1920, June — Dr. Fred W. Hixson, president of the Uni- 
versity of Chattanooga, was announced as the tenth president 
of Allegheny College. 

Dr. Hixson was born in Indiana in 187 5. His father was a 
Methodist minister. In 1899, Dr. Hixson graduated from De 
Pauw University. He was active in student activities and is a 
member of the Delta Kappa Epsilon, and Phi Beta Kappa fra- 
ternities. President Hixson received the degree of Doctor of 
Divinity from De Pauw University in 19 13, and the degree of 



OLD ALLEGHENY 59 

Doctor of Laws from Dickinson College in 19 18. He has been 
active in the Masonic order, being a member of the Knights 
Templar. He is also a member of the University Senate of 
the Methodist Episcopal Church, a contributor to the church 
-press and a lecturer of note. 

Dr. W. H. Crawford, retiring president received the degree 
of LL.D., and was made president emeritus of the college. 

November 11 — Dr. Hixson was inaugurated president of 
Allegheny College. Sixty-two of America's leading colleges 
and universities were represented at the ceremonies. Gov- 
ernor William Cameron Sproul, of the Commonwealth of 
Pennsylvania, presented the congratulations of the state. In 
his inaugural address, President Hixson emphasized the need 
of a liberal Christian education, of quality, and of a pure mind. 
At a special meeting of the Board of Trustees, it was voted 
to begin a campaign for a million and a quarter dollars endow- 
ment. Work was at once started on formulating some definite 
plan. During the Christmas holidays a reception was tendered 
Dr. and Mrs. Fred W. Hixson, at the University Club of Pitts- 
burgh, and at that time .public announcement was made of the 
undertaking, which is to be known as "The Allegheny College 
Second Century" movement. 

A "Committee of 105" has been appointed to take charge 
of the campaign, with Arthur W. Thompson, president of the 
Board of Trustees of the college, as general chairman. The 
work will be under the direction of Dr. John W. Hancher, of 
New York City, who will be counsellor of finance to the com- 
mittee of 105. The endowment is to be applied to equipment, 
maintenance, improvements, departments of instruction, a-p- 
plied sciences, physical education and scholarships. Old Alle- 
gheny is indeed entering on a new era. 

Keeping pace with general progress of the college. Faculty 
changes for the year 1920-21 are as follows:

General Information 



PART I 

Entrance; required work; aid to students; courses of study; 
living expenses; endowments; prizes; registration, and finan- 
cial status. 

General Purpose 

This institution is a college, not a university. It does 
not undertake to lit the student to enter a profession without 
further technical study. In all departments of instruction the 
end sought is not specialization but thorough discipline and 
correct habits of observation and reflection. It is on this .prin- 
ciple that the curricula are based. Under the various groups 
about three-fourths of the subjects are prescribed. These 
studies are such as have been found to be best adapted to se- 
cure symmetrical development. A wide range of electives is 
offered, enabling the student to lay a foundation for subse- 
quent professional study. By a wise choice of electives a stu- 
dent may, in some cases, shorten by a year the time required 
to complete his professional course. The experience of the 
college proves that its graduates are enabled to distinguish 
themselves in various careers whenever they have added to 
their college training the special equipment for a profession. 

A large proportion of college graduates enter net upon pro- 
fessional but upon business life. The general principle above 
stated applies to them with as much force as to those who 
enter professions. A college training does not teach a man 
how to do business successfully, but it does .prepare him to do 
business rapidly, and to attain large success, if he has the 
requisite talent. 

Entrance Examinations 

Examinations for admission are held on Monday and Tues- 
day of Commencement Week, and on Monday and Tuesday 
preceding the opening of the first term. 

All examinations except those taken in Meadville are under 
direction of the College Entrance Examination Board, whose 
certificates are accepted in all subjects. 



62 OLD ALLEGHENY 

In place of examination in studies required for admission 
to college, certificates will be accepted from approved first 
class high schools having a regular four year's course, for per- 
sons regularly graduating in such a course. Certificates will 
also be accepted in case of graduates of a three years' high 
school course, provided they pass entrance examination in not 
less than three additional units to their certificate. 

Special Students 

Persons desiring to pursue studies in the college are, as a 
rule, required to be prepared to enter the freshman class as 
candidates for one of the degrees. Under exceptional cir- 
cumstances, however, persons who are not candidates for a de- 
gree may be admitted as special students and allowed to pur- 
sue selected studies. Every such .person will be required to 
satisfy the Faculty that he is prepared to do with profit, the 
work which he selects. Each case will be decided on its own 
merits. 

The Adviser System 

Each student on entering chooses some member of the 
Faculty, who serves throughout the freshman year as a special 
counsellor on all matters in which the student finds the need 
of frank and friendly advice. The relation between adviser and 
student is intended to be perfectly fraternal, without restraint 
on either side. At the beginning of the sophomore year the 
professor under whom the student chooses to do his major 
work becomes the student's adviser for the remainder of the 
course. 

Honor System 

All college examinations and formal quizzes are conducted 
under an honor system, by which the presence of the instruc- 
tors in the room is dispensed with, and the student is placed 
on his honor. The following signed declaration is required 
to make the examination valid: "I hereby declare on my 
honor that I have neither given nor received aid in this ex- 
amination". 

All cases of sus.pected dishonesty are dealt with by the 
Student Honor Committee, who are authorized to decide on 
the question of guilt and to recommend to the Faculty that a 



OLD ALLEGHENY 63 

senior, junior, or sophomore found guilty of a first offense, 
and a freshman found guilty of a second offense, be dismissed 
from college. 

Required Work 

For graduation in any Group, all work specified as re- 
quired must be complete, and additional subjects selected from 
the general list of electives sufficient to make a total of not 
less than one hundred twenty term hours. "Term hours" 
signifies one hour recitation weekly for one term of eighteen 
weeks. In the senior year a thesis is required. 

The regular number is sixteen recitations weekly, but the 
Registrar may assign seventeen or less than twelve hours' 
work without the approval of the Registration Committee. In 
no case will additional hours be allowed except on the basis 
of previous high grade work. 

Degrees 

The degree of Bachelor of Arts is conferred upon students 
who complete in a satisfactory manner the requirements un- 
der one of the A. B. Grou.ps. The degree of Bachelor of 
Science is conferred upon students who complete in a satis- 
factory manner any one of the Science Groups. 

Bachelors of Art of this college may pursue, in residence, 
work in not more than two distinct lines of study; and on the 
completion of a full year's work, including a satisfactory 
thesis, receive the degree of Master of Arts. 

The degree of Master of Science is conferred upon Bachel- 
ors of Science on the same conditions as the degree of Master 
of Arts is conferred upon Bachelors of Arts. 

Every person receiving a degree from the college pays a 
diploma fee of ten dollars. 

Aid to Students 

Self-Help — Young men help themselves in several ways. 
A considerable number of the present students are earning 
their expenses in whole or in part. Some are employed in 
light work connected with the college or the boarding clubs. 
Others find in town opportunities for work of various kinds. 
A few are serving churches in the neighborhood of Meadville. 



64 OLD ALLEGHENY 

It is the policy of the college to help students to help them- 
selves. 

Graduation Honors 

Seniors who have had no grade less than A during their 
entire college course are awarded "summa cum laude". All 
other seniors who have had no grade less than B and have 
maintained an average of A are awarded "magna cum laude". 
All other seniors who have had no grade less than C and 
have maintained an average of 88 are awarded "cum laude". 

Class Honors 

In each class students who have had no grade less than 
B during the year and who have maintained an average of A 
are awarded "First Honors". Other students who have no 
grade less than B and have maintained an average of 88 are 
awarded "Second Honors". 

Endowments and Prizes 

Many Allegheny students receive financial a'd through a 
number of endowments made by alumni and benefactors of 
the college. 

The Lindley endowment, by the late Miss Lucy Lindley, of 
Meadville, provides for the interest on $10,000 to be given to 
aid students de.pendent upon their own resources. 

The Ballantyne Scholarship Fund, a $30,000 gift by Mrs. 
N. F. Ballantyne of Pittsburgh, in memory of her husband J. 
H. Ballantyne, the interest of which is to defray the expenses 
of needy students of the Pittsburgh Conference who are study- 
ing for the ministry. 

The George W. Wright Scholarship Fund, a gift of $1,000, 
the proceeds of which are to be used only by the representa- 
tive nominated by Mr. Wright. 

High School Scholarships of $100 each are given by the 
Board of Trustees to honor students of the high schools in 
the patronizing territory of the college. 

Educational Society Loans are given to students who are 
members of the Methodist Church, and who show premise of 
usefulness in some Christian activity. 

Athletic Scholarships will possibly be given in the very near 



OLD ALLEGHENY 65 

future, to students who show marked ability in athletics, and 
who primarily are desirous of gaining an education at Allegheny 
College. 

The com.petition prizes of the college consist of the Wake- 
field Oration Prize of $50, the Philo-Franklin Oration, open to 
members of the Philo-Franklin Forum, the Heckel Prizes in 
Science of $3 5 and $\S, for the two best written scientillc 
theses, and the Ballinger Chemistry Prize of $25. 

College Fees 

All students pay a fee of $200 a year, one-half of which is 
payable at the opening of each term. This includes incidental, 
library and gymnasium fees. Additional fees are charged for 
laboratory work in the science courses. 

By vote of the students the following additional annual fees 
are collected by the treasurer, one-half at the beginning of 
each term: 

Athletics for Men $10.00 

Athletics for Women 6.00 

Debate and Oratory 1.00 

College Publications 5.5o 

For this students receive free admission to all games and 
contests held under college auspices, and free subscriptions 
to all college publications, including the college annual. 
All college fees are due on the day of registration. 
No student is admitted to class until all fees are paid or 
satisfactorily arranged for. No fees are returned except in 
case of sickness. 

Living Expenses for Men 

The young men of the college board in Cochran Hall, in 
fraternity chapter houses, cr in private families. The cost of 
board in Cochran Hall is $240 a year. This rate is subject to 
change without notice. The cost in chapter houses and pri- 
vate families, is as a rule ten to twenty-live per cent more. 
One-half the room rent in Cochran Hall is due and payable 
at the opening of the first term and one-half at the opening 
of the second term. A deposit fee cf ten dollars is required 
when the room is reserved. This fee will be deducted from 
the second half-year's payment, but is not returnable in case 



66 OLD ALLEGHENY 

the student leaves the college. The rate for rocnis varies from 
fifty to one hundred dollars a year for each student. All rooms 
are to be surrendered not later than noon on Monday of Com- 
mencement Week. Residents in the men's dormitories make 
a deposit of ^10 at the beginning of the year to cover damage 
to buildings. The unused portion is returned at the end of 
the year. The amount for board in Cochran Hall is due as 
follows: $60 at the opening of the year; $60 on the second 
Monday in November; $60 at the opening of the second term; 
$60 on the third Monday in April. If the student has a room- 
mate the necessary expenses for the year will fall within the 
following estimates: 

Low Liberal 

Term and laboratory fees ... $200.00 $240.00 

Room rent, fuel, light 50.00 100.00 

Table Board 240.00 270.00 

Books 1 5.00 40.00 

Total $505.00 $650.00 

Expenses other than those enumerated depend largely upon 
the student's tastes and habits, and the college does not un- 
dertake to estimate them. For the items mentioned the fig- 
ures given are exact. Few students will have occasion for 
spending more. This, of course, does not include traveling or 
personal ex.penses. An economical student can live on $5 50 
a year. 

A circular detailing the expense of living in Cochran Hall 
will be sent on request. 

For Women 

Allegheny College is a cc-educational institution. It en- 
deavors to give young women the highest educational advan- 
tages open to young men. Instruction is given in the same 
subjects and by the same professors; and young women have 
access to all departments of the college, and are eligible to all 
honors. For students desiring to combine music with college 
work, opportunity for excellent instruction is afforded in the 
Pennsylvania College of Music. 

Hulings Hall — Young women not living at home or with 
relatives are required to live in Hulings Hall, The constant 



OLD ALLEGHENY 6/ 

aim is to furnish here an ideal college home for young women, 
where they shall be surrounded with influences which promote 
true and cultured womanhood. The Hall is under the charge 
of the Dean of Women, whose influence as well as that of her 
competent assistants, is constantly felt in the social, moral, 
and religious development of the young women under her 
care. 

For the .proper maintenance of the Hall as a college home 
for young women, certain specific rules are essential; but it is 
the policy of the college to make only such regulations as 
will best protect the interests of those who reside in the dormi- 
tory. 

The rules governing the conduct of the young women of 
Hulings Hall were carefully drawn up by the administration 
of the college and the Dean of Women, and by action of Faculty 
were entrusted to the Student Government Association of the 
Hall, which assumes the responsibility of the observance of all 
rules and regulations. Thus under the guidance of the Dean 
of Women and the Executive Board of the Associr.iion, ihe 
young women of the Hall are given individual and community 
responsibility for their conduct in college life. A copy of 
the regulations for government of the Hall will be sent on re- 
quest. 

The residents of the dormitory maintain in the building 
the services of a resident trained nurse. This valuable ad- 
dition to the hall life has been justified by the better condi- 
tions for health and comfort afforded the young women. For 
this purpose an assessment of a five-dollar house fee is made 
payable at the beginning of the year. 

The rooms are furnished with single beds, mattresses, .pil- 
lows, chairs and table. Each resident supplies the following 
articles: Sheets, pillow cases, bed covering, towels, and 
napkins. 

The rates by the year including board, room, heat and 
lights, are ^33 5 for each student. This rate is subject to 
change without notice. The rooms are all double, so that 
two students occupy each room. In case a student desires 
to room alone, there is an additional charge of $So. Bills are 
payable in four installments as follows: ^100 at the opening 



68 OLD ALLEGHENY 

of the year, $8 5 on the second Monday of November, $8 5 at 
the opening of the second term, and $65 on the third Monday 
in April. A deposit fee of $10.00 is required when a room is 
reserved. This fee is credited on the last payment of the year, 
but is not returnable in case the student leaves the college. 



Courses of Instruction — By Departments 

In this detailed description of the courses of instruction 
the number of "hours" refer to the number of hour recita- 
tions weekly. Each term is eighteen weeks in length. 

All courses are offered yearly, except as especially noted. 

Any elective course may be withdrawn if not chosen by at 
least four students. 

Two hours of laboratory work are counted as equivalent 
to one recitation hour. 

Art 

None of the courses in Art are technical. They are di- 
rected to the foundation of correct judgment regarding art 
objects and an acquaintance with the more notable monuments 
of the art of civilized people as an index to their character and 
ideals. The instruction is mainly by lecture but much reading 
is required as well as close study of art objects in the originals 
or in reproduction. 

Astronomy 

The courses in this department are designed to acquaint 
the student with the great world of life in its different forms, 
functions and uses. Considerable attention is given to details 
in observation and to a comparative study of forms, thereby 
training the student to observe accurately and to think clearly 
and logically. The economic aspects of the subjects are con- 
sidered with the view of .presenting some of the great problems 
in the applied biological sciences. 

A Biological Club exists for advanced students. In the 
meetings reviews of current literature or of research work 
of the student are presented. 



OLD ALLEGHENY 69 

Chemistry 

The courses offered by this department are intended to 
have both a cultural and technical value. The work has been 
organized as the result cf an endeavor to acquaint the stu- 
dent with the general and special principles of the work, to 
familiarize the worker with accurate methods of experimenta- 
tion, to develop the ability to observe critically and accurately, 
and make correct inferences, and finally, to provide suitable 
preliminary training for independent research work. 

Economics and iBusiness Administration 

The courses in this department are open to those who 
have completed a year's work in history or political science. 
Particular attention is given to the study of the development 
of economic life and institutions, American conditions being 
specifically analyzed. Students are familiarized with the ac- 
cepted principles of economics, and they are given a practical 
acquaintance with the .problems of complex economic organi- 
zation. Encouragement is also offered to individual research, 
with a view to possible future specialization. The instruction 
in the several courses is conducted by means of lectures and 
assigned reading in journals, periodicals and government docu- 
ments. Papers on to.pics assigned for investigation and com- 
parative examination of various authorities are required at dif- 
ferent stages of the work. Throughout the work in economics 
its close relationship to history and political science is im- 
pressed upon the student, and the work in these subjects is 
closely coordinated. Course I is required for admission to 
any of the other courses in this de.partment. 

Education 

The aim of this department is to give elementary instruc- 
tion in pedagogy, with special reference to secondary educa- 
tion. The courses offered together with Philosophy 1, II, III, 
IV and V, give the students ample opportunity to meet in full 
the requirements of the educational code of Pennsylvania for 
the Provisional Certificate. 



70 OLD ALLEGHENY 

English Bible 

The work in this department is intended to open to the 
student the rich stores of literature contained in the Bible; 
to familiarize him with the history of the Hebrew peo.ple, their 
civilization, and their influence on the world; and to lead to 
the critical study of the spirit and form of Hebrew literature 
as it is shown in the English version. The English Bible is 
studied as a great monument of our literature and as the 
source of our knowledge of one of the great civilizations of 
the world. The courses do not touch questions of doctrine 
or belief. 

English Language and Literature 

This department aims to cultivate straight thinking and 
facility of ex.pression; to acquaint the student with the vari- 
ous fields of English writing from a historical standpoint; and 
to develop a genuine taste for good literature and the ability 
to interpret it. The formal study of composition is undertaken 
in Course I, but in all courses attention is given to correct 
expression, both oral and written. 

French Language and Literature 

It is the aim of the courses in this subject to give to the 
student; (1) an accurate knowledge of the language of the 
present time boith as written and s.poken; (2) an apprecia- 
tion of the more important masterpieces of the literature pro- 
portionate to the knowledge of the language; and (3) a knowl- 
edge of the historical development of the literature. 

The work as outlined above is carried on by means of 
recitations, written exercises, and essays, lectures in French, 
and collateral reading. Emphasis is laid from the beginning 
upon the ability of the student to express himself directly in 
the language. With this end in view the work of the class 
room is conducted in French, and phonetic methods are em- 
ployed in order to give accuracy of pronouncation. 

Geology 

Including Geography, Mineralogy and Paleontology. 
Geology deals with the constitution and history of the 
earth and the character, history and relationships of the de- 



OLD ALLEGHENY yi 

veloping life upon it. It explains many of the natural phe- 
nomena at hand, or that one meets in travel, and calls forth 
careful observation and clear thinking. The courses are 
planned to give thorough training in the principles of the sub- 
ject and a sound basis for future industrial, economic, or .pro- 
fessional work in its various departments. 

Greek Language and Literature 

The aim of this department is to give the student a prac- 
tical acquaintance with Greek life and thought. This can be 
adequately gained only through a first hand knowledge of the 
literature. By accurate work in the first years of the study 
of the language the student can acquire the ability to read 
widely and independently. 

Students entering college without Greek may take Greek 
A, and be prepared to enter the later courses with a mini- 
mum loss of time. 

It is realized that some students have been denied the op- 
portunity to secure a mastery of the language who would be 
glad to have something of the inspiration that comes from 
contact with Greek culture and institutions. For such the 
courses of Greek art, Greek history, and Greek literature in 
translation are available. 

The department .possesses a carefully selected collection 
of casts of antique sculpture, a considerable number of Greek 
vase fragments, about a thousand photographs, and several 
hundred lantern slides. 

History 

The aims of this department are to give that knowledge 
of the facts and philosophy of history which belongs to a lib- 
eral education, to equip the student for more advanced work 
in the historical and social sciences, and to prepare the stu- 
dent for journalism or for the study of law. With these ends 
in view the courses are so arranged as to cover a wide field of 
study in a thorough and orderly manner. The evolution of 
Euro.pean civilization from its sources, the growth and influ- 
ence of Anglo-Saxon institutions, the development of the Mod- 
ern European nations and of the United States are the general 
themes of the work. Especial emphasis is laid upon the 



':J2 OLD ALLEGHENY 

Renaissance and Reformation, the Frencli Revolutionary and 
Napoleonic eras, and the development of the great European 
powers from the Congress of Vienna to the present time. The 
settlement and ex.pansion of the American colonies and the 
social, economical, and political evolution of the United States 
are given careful and detailed study. History is presented as 
a real educative process and the close connection between 
history, political science, and economics is constantly kept in 
mind, the work in these three subjects being closely coordi- 
nated. The department has the appropriate library author- 
ities for the several courses, and source materials are used 
where available. The method of instruction is a combination 
of lectures and is required for admission to the succeeding 
courses. 

Italian Language and Literature 

This department offers two courses in which a thorough 
study of the grammar is made and a good reading knowledge 
is obtained. The first year is devoted to an intensive study 
of the grammar and the reading of easy modern texts. In the 
second year a study is made of the older Italian classics. 

Latin Language and Literature 

The courses in the Latin de.partment are intended to di- 
rect the student to a systematic study of the language and its 
development, to acquaint him through a varied reading of the 
best authors with the leading features of the literature, and to 
make him familiar with the main facts of Roman history, life, 
and civilization. Technical grammar and composition are 
studied only in so far as they contribute to the comprehension 
of the language. The department is well equipped with books, 
maps, and fac-similes of inscriptions and has a good collection 
of photographs, lantern slides, and antiquities for illustrative 
purposes. 

The instruction is given by means of recitations, supple- 
mented by lectures and, in advanced courses, by individual 
work. 

Mathematics 

The courses in this department are arranged with a view 
to develop in the student a certain degree of mathematical ma- 



OLD A L L E G II E N ^■ ;73 

turity and to familiarize him with the subject matter and 
methods of mathematical work, as well as to provide for the 
more or less technical and traditional requirements in the dif- 
- ferent mathematical subjects. 

Philosophy 

The courses of the department are planned with the fol- 
lowing purpose: to bring about reflective views of human so- 
ciety and the world order; to establish an attitude toward life 
and its .problems that will make the individual an efficient fac- 
tor in promoting and conserving the welfare of his fellowmen; 
to lead the student to a better understanding of the laws of 
human nature, and to a critical study of himself; and to ac- 
quaint those desiring it with laboratory methods in psychology. 
The standpoint is in strict accord with the assured results of 
scientitic research. Facts are brought together from the 
various fields of science, and presented in such a way as to 
produce breadth of vision in the interpretation of natural and 
social phenomena. 

Physics 

This department otTers courses which contribute to gen- 
eral culture, and those which give training for technical work. 
They are presented by means of lectures with experimental 
demonstrations, combined with recitations and discussions of 
.problems. In addition the student performs experiments in 
the laboratory for the purpose of obtaining a practical knowl- 
edge of the fundamental laws and principles of science. 

Political Science 

The courses in this field are planned so that emphasis is 
laid upon the organization and functions of national, state, 
and local governments in the United States, with the two-fold 
purpose of .preparing students for the privileges and responsi- 
bilities of citizenship, and of familiarizing them with a con- 
crete example of government as a foundation for the more 
advanced theoretical work in the nature and functions of the 
state in general. These courses are devoted to government and 
modern political problems, and one course is offered on 



74 OLD ALLEGHENY 

the general principles of political science. There are also 
courses in constitutional law and international law. 

Public Speaking 

The courses in .public spealcing are designed to train the 
student in the composition and delivery of the various forms 
of public address. So far as possible, the work is adjusted to 
'the particular needs of the individual student. 

Spanish Language and Literature 

This department offers two courses in which a thorough 
study is made of the grammar. A good reading knowledge is 
obtained. Concurrent with the present trend of things, con- 
siderable attention is given the study of practical Spanish, in- 
cluding familiarization with commercial language. Attention 
is also given to conversational work. 

Surveying and Graphics 

The courses in surveying and graphics are based largely on 
the needs of the civil engineer and draughtsman. The work 
is scientific and yet thoroughly practical in its scope and 
methods. While these courses are provided for students tak- 
ing B. S. Group IV, they are open as electives to all students. 

Chapel Exercises 

Chapel services are held each morning and all students are 
required to be present. Regular attendance on Sunday morn- 
ings at some church, selected by the student, or his parents, 
is also expected. Prayer meetings are held on Wednesday 
evenings of each week. The results are manifest in the quick- 
ening and strengthening of many in the religious life. 

The Young Men's Christian Association and the Young 
Women's Christian Association are active and efficient organ- 
izations. Bible study classes and a mission study class are 
well attended. 

The religious influence of the college is not in any sense 
sectarian, but Christian. On the rolls this year are represen- 
tatives from sixteen Christian denominations. 



OLD ALLEGHENY 75 

Summer Session 

The Summer Session of Allegheny College will be held 
every week day for the six weeks. For each course two term 
hours credit will he given which will count toward a degree. 
For each entrance course one-half unit will be allowed, unless 
otherwise specified. 

The plan of the summer school is to give work that will 
meet primarily the needs of the three following classes of 
students: (l) teachers who may desire a better training for 
their work in the class room, or who are preparing to pass 
examinations required for the various teachers' certificates; 
(2) college students who may desire to obtain advance college 
credits or to remove conditions, and even high school students 
desiring to remove entrance conditions for admission to the 
college; (3) any person who may desire to enter the courses 
for the purpose of self-improvement. No requirements are 
necessary for admission, exce.pt that each professor will satisfy 
himself that the candidate is qualified to be admitted to his 
course. 

Instruction will be given for the most part by the heads 
of the various departments. The courses will include the 
languages, the sciences, mathematics, history, psychology, and 
education. 

A bulletin of the summer session detailing the various 
courses is published about A.pril l each year, and will be sent 
on application. 

Financial Status 

The wonderful financial development of Allegheny can 
only be understood by reading her history of the past century. 
In the past twenty-five years her endowment has jum-ped from 
a meagre ^10,000 to approximately $1,000,000. Her buildings, 
equipment, and general property have made marked increase. 
An approximate statement of the present financial standing 
of Allegheny College is as follows:

Campus $ 142,000 

Buildings 680,000

PART II 
STUDENT LIFE AND ACTIVITY 

When we speak of Allegheny traditions, we think of the 
events which have happened in the .past and which have left 
their mark on the future. Student life at the present time 
does not differ greatly from student life in years gone by. 
The same pranks are played and if not the same pranks the 
same spirit prevails. 

The old political rivalry has long since died out. Many 
were the episodes connected with the rivalry between the sup- 
porters of the old Democratic and Whig parties, the Alleghen- 
ians and the Philo-Franklin members. 

Student opinion has gained expression in Allegheny since 
times before the Civil War. The method of expression has 
not always been of the best nor has the opinion expressed been 
of the wisest. Anonymous publications and pam.phlets have 
been issued since 185 5, in which, students, faculty, and town 



OLD ALLEGHENY "J"] 

folks have been ridiculed and roasted. Human nature seems 
to repeat itself, generation after generation, and yet, after read- 
ing a copy of the "Thunderbclt" of June 29, 1859, it is pos- 
sible to see considerable improvement in the conduct of the 
present day scholars. Of late years, the spirit has been ex- 
emplitled in a small pam.phlet called the "Pandora". A wise 
reader may unravel many unspoken truths in the expression 
of these usually worthless publications. 

The tlrst representative college publication to be issued 
was the Campus, in 18 76, the staff of which was composed of 
one member of each of the three up.per classes. The freshmen 
of the class of 1887 resenting their neglect, attempted and suc- 
ceeded to some extent, in offering competition to the Campus 
by the publication of the Owl. The management of the Campus 
is no longer a private undertaking, but is regulated by com- 
petition and student election. Fraternity "rings" are now, as 
before, important factors in these elections; a regrettable fea- 
ture. The publication of the Literary Monthly in 1896, took 
root from this hostility to fraternity control. Its further .pur- 
pose was to promote literary ability. Like the Campus its 
staff is chosen on the competitive basis. The Kaldron, pub- 
lished in 1908, followed the earlier and parent publication, 
"The Alleghenian", founded in 1889. Formerly this annual 
was controlled and published by the fraternities. However, it 
too, has come under the elective roll. "The Pregtonian", 
a publication of the Alden Preparatory School, was interest- 
ing, but like the school itself, short lived. There have been 
many literary societies in the past which have for the most 
part gone out of existence. The Allegheny Society was the 
first to be organized, in 1820. In 1834 the Philo-Franklin 
Society came into existence and still forges ahead. The Ossoli 
Society for women organized in 1870 and the Athenian in 1877 
are no longer active. 

A wonderful development has taken place in athletics in 
the past thirty years. Military drill, the tlrst advancement 
along the line of physical training was soon superseded by 
the baseball epidemic in the sixties. In 1880 the first ath- 
letic association was founded and not until 1891 was the first 
baseball trip taken. After a long siege of neglect interest in 



78 OLD ALLEGHENY 

baseball is once more reviving. Football was not in actual 
existence until 1899. It has been maintained steadily since 
that time. Basket ball, the stronghold in Allegheny athletics 
has since 1903 produced winning teams. Track teams came 
into existence with the early field meets. However, Allegheny 
could not at that time support four of the main branches of 
athletics and track was dropped, not to be taken up again until 
the failure of baseball. Our track teams have all been good 
winners. 

The social life of old Allegheny stands for the highest 
educational, social development of man. The numerous or- 
ganizations and the varied activities oflFer unlimited oppor- 
tunity for training. Annual Y. W. and Y. M. C. A. receptions 
for the freshman class oflfer an excellent opportunity to get 
acquainted. "Hello" day is a later innovation. It serves as 
an informal way of becoming acquainted among the students. 
Class rivalry is brought to a climax in the Washington Birth- 
day Banquet, in which each class endeavors to outstrip the 
others in friendly jests, songs, and costumes. The So.pho- 
more-Senior Banquet held in some nearby town is a never 
failing occurence and seldom do the chagrined Frosh and 
Juniors find the banqueters in time to stop their merriment. 
The possibilities for roughness on the occasion make it im- 
possible for the ladies to attend. 

Organ recitals. Glee club concerts, and especially arranged 
series of lectures are given in the college chapel. The John 
C. Sturtevant Memorial Foundation, a gift of ^5,000 for a lec- 
tureship foundation aids greatly in this line. College plays 
are given by both the men and the women of the college. The 
different organizations make things interesting by bringing 
prominent speakers before the student body. Oratorical con- 
tests are annual events. 

Fraternities and clubs hold their parties throughout the 
year always under faculty su.pervision. Of late years, danc- 
ing has been permitted. Never has a better social spirit pre- 
vailed in Allegheny than today. For the past three years the 
Junior Promenade has taken a leading place. The Saeger- 
town Inn and the Riverside of Cambridge oflFer excellent ad- 
vantages for small gatherings and party dinners. Commence- 



OLD ALLEGHENY 79 

ment is accompanied witli tlie usual number of class reunions, 
receptions and addresses. At this time the fraternities hold 
their annual alumni banquets. Moving Up Day is the occasion 
a scene of a lively parade through the streets of Meadville, 
and of general merry making. 

The activities of the freshman and so'phomore classes 
are the soccer football game, obstacle race, tug-of-war, and 
tie-up. The winner is chosen by points. The poster scrap, 
held near the opening of college is now under student super- 
vision. This takes the place of the old-time poster posting on 
the buildings of the town. It is not unusual in this day, to 
see an unusually fresh "frosh" come to cha'pel on a bright 
morning, shorn of his hair. This practice will soon be aban- 
doned. A printed copy of "regulations" governing the fresh- 
man class is regularly distributed among newcomers, by the 
Student Senate, obedience being strictly enforced by the up- 
per classmen. 



CLUBS 
Classical Club 



The Classical Club, the first of the departmental clubs 
of Allegheny College, was established in 1897. The club has 
been, from the beginning, an organization primarily of stu- 
dents and most of the work has been done by undergraduates, 
with the advice and assistance of faculty members. The pur- 
pose of the club has been to promote a closer acquaintance 
and co-operation among its members and a greater devotion to 
sound scholarship. The nature of the club's activities jias 
been research and study of history, literature and art of Greece 
and Rome. Ty^pical subjects discussed in meetings are, 
"Pompeii of Today and Yesterday", "the Olympic Games" and 
"Demosthenes as an Orator". The club room, on the second 
floor of the Library, has been tastefully equipped with casts, 
pictures and book cases and is used by classical students of the 
upper classes At the beginning of this, its twenty-third year, 
the club is in flourishing condition, returning a full measure 
of profit and pleasure.

The Quill Club 

The Quill Club was organized in the spring of 1899 with 
the double purpose of stimulating and censoring press corre- 
spondence in the interest of Allegheny College, and of en- 
couraging the productions of material for the two college pub- 
lications. Membership is strictly elective, being given for ap- 
.preciative literary ability. In 1908 the club took up its pres- 
ent quarters in the Library. 

One of the recent innovations of the Club has been the 
bringing to Allegheny of modern poets and literary leaders. 
Seumas MacManus, Vachel Lindsay, probably best known for 
his poem "The Congo", and Harriet Monroe, editor of 
"Poetry" and herself an excellent writer, have been the guests 
of the club and college. The club is now twenty-one years 
old and is celebrating its coming of age by adopting a new 
constitution that will strengthen its organization and make it 
an even more valuable factor in the life of the New Allegheny. 

Le Petit Salon 

"Le Petit Salon est assemble pour la .premiere fois le 30 
Octobre, l9ll. On a elu les otiicers suivants: President, 
Mile. Ling; Secretaire, Mile. Peck; Treasurer, Mile. Prenatt." 
These few lines from the minutes of the first meeting of Le 
Petit Salon record the founding of one of the most interest- 
ing and active of the departmental clubs on the Hill. 

The club meets twice a month: the first meeting of the 
month is in a strict sense, the regular meeting of Le Petit 
Salon; the second meeting is held in conjunction with L' Alli- 
ance Francaise. Membership is limited to thirty students ma- 
joring, or especially interested in French. 

Each year, aside from the elaborate programs of the meet- 
ings, it is the policy of the Le Petit Salon to give a French 
play, to which the entire college is invited. These plays have 
never failed to arouse general college interest. 

Modern Problems Club 

For some time prior to 1912 students and instructors in 
the departments of History and Economics felt the need of a 
society whose meetings should be devoted primarily to dis- 



OLD ALLEGHENY 8l 

cussions upon topics of historical interest or of current polit- 
ical, economics, or social importance. This need resulted in 
the formation of the Modern Problems Club with twenty-one 
charter members. Membership is confined to men who are 
majoring in History or Economics, and to those prominent in 
some allied activity such as varsity debate. The usual prac- 
tice is only to elect men of the two u>pper classes or of grad- 
uate rank. 

Each fall a junior is elected chairman of the Program Com- 
mittee. The next year this man automatically becomes presi- 
dent of the club. Through its affiliation with the Internation- 
al Relations Club, the Modern Problems Club is able to secure 
fine material dealing with current subjects of public interest, 
and occasionally to bring speakers of note to address its meet- 
ings This branch of the Modern Problems Club is under the 
supervision of the vice-president. 

Meetings are held monthly, on the fourth Thursday even- 
ing. Every other meeting is a banquet, and in every meeting 
an effort is made to present such a program as may be of in- 
terest and of profit to the student in its bearing upon his life 
as a citizen. 

The Tingley Biology Club 

Among those clubs on the Hill which have justified their 
existence, and which have lived up to the high-sounding 
clauses in their constitutions, is the Tingley Biology Club, 
founded in 19 17. In order to give the members an actual 
chance to carry out the plans of the club, meetings are held 
every two weeks, instead of once a month as is the case with 
most of the departmental clubs. 

The first meetings of the month are devoted to a program on 
some phase of nature or scientific study. The second meet- 
ing of each month takes the form of a cross-country hike to 
some tpoint of interest in the Meadville district. On such oc- 
casions, specimens are collected for the college museum, and 
a study made of the plant and animal life which comes under 
observation. Attention is also paid to geological formations. 

Members are elected by ballot and are generally chosen 
from those students majoring in biology. 



82 OLD ALLEGHENY 

The Thoburn Club 

In the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and 
seven, on the first Friday in October, the Thoburn Club was 
born. Its infancy began, not in surroundings which were im- 
pediments to its growth, but in the idealistic atmosphere creat- 
ed by such men as Dr. Camden M. Cobern, President Wm. H. 
Crawford and other influential men of the college. 

The club grew by leaps and bounds. C. A. Hastings was 
elected the first president. Dr. Cobern, who the year previous 
had been elected to the chair of English Bible, gave his help- 
ful support and the organization came rapidly to the front 
in college activities. 

The purpose of the club is to give to the embryo preacher, 
the missionary volunteer, the Y. M. C. A. worker an oppor- 
tunity to other helpful ideas which sooner or later can be .put 
into practice either at home or on the foreign field. This club 
also brings to the college every year a number of lecturers in 
such subjects as would naturally appeal to the young men who 
are interested in the moral and spiritual uplift of humanity. 
It works shoulder to shoulder with the Young Men's Chris- 
tian Association and is in close alliance with the Thoburn 
Chair of English Bible and Philosophy of Religion. Since nine- 
teen hundred and seven it has been a very strong force in the 
religious activities of the college. 

The Dutton Society of Applied Science 

The Dutton Society is composed of the instructors and 
students in the department of mathematics and surveying. 
Meetings are held every two weeks for the purpose of dis- 
cussing problems and current events in the field of applied 
science. Interesting technical papers are often .presented. 
Trips are m.ade quite frequently to scenes where construction 
work is going on in the vicinity of Meadville. All members 
hold membership in the American Association of Engineers, 
and it is planned to hold part of the meetings in connection 
with the local chapter of that organization. 

The Block A Club 

. One of the most important organizations in college and 
one to which every student desires to belong is the Block 



OLD ALLEGHENY 83 

A Club. To this organization belong the men who have won 
their A's by upholding Allegheny's name on the gridiron, the 
basketball tloor or on the cinder path. 

The purpose of the Block A Club is to bring athletes 
closer together, socially and athletically; to co-O'perate with 
the authorities of the college in securing equipment; to en- 
courage men of athletic calibre to come to Allegheny; to foster 
a live athletic spirit in the college; and in general to take an ac- 
tive interest in all vital questions pertaining to athletics. 

The home of the club is naturally in the gymnasium where 
the trophy room has been set aside for the use of the mem- 
bers of the club. 

To wear a gold A in the lapel of his coat is therefore the 
dream of every freshman who enters Allegheny. 

Eaglesmere Club 

The organization of the Eaglesmere Club places Allegheny 
in line with the leading colleges and universities of Pennsyl- 
vania, Ohio, West Virginia, Delaware and Maryland, in sum- 
mer conference activity. The membership includes the girls 
who attend the East-Central Field Y. W. C. A. Conference at 
Eaglesmere Park. 

Twentieth Century Club 

For a long time a need was felt among Allegheny College 
women for promoting an interest in current events and mod- 
ern day problems. So in the spring of I9l6 a petition was 
.presented to the faculty of Allegheny College for permission 
to form a Current Events Club. 

The organization is somewhat similar to the Modern Prob- 
lems Club among the men. In the words of the constitution 
"the aim of the Twentieth Century Club shall be the promo- 
tion of an interest in, and an intimate knowledge of modern 
topics, such as present day literature, world politics, investi- 
gations in sciences and sociological problems". 

This organization which started with a great amount of 
enthusiasm and twenty-six members, of whom thirteen were 
charter members, has continued to grow until it now has a 
membership of forty. 



84 OLD ALLEGHENY 

The Twentieth Century Club fills the purpose of its foun- 
ders when it gives to the women of Allegheny College train- 
ing in the expression of opinion u.pon modern and current 
subjects. 

The Masonic Club 

The Masonic Club was organized in the fall of 1919 by the 
college students who were members of the Masonic Order. 
All Masons who are students are eligible to membership and 
the faculty members are ex-ofiicio members. 

The objects of the club are to further the interests of 
Masonry among the student members and to bind them to ties 
of closer friendship. The club holds numerous social events 
during the year in the form of smokers and dancing .parties. 
It is an institution similar to those established in many of the 
larger schools of the country. 

Overseas Club 

Realizing that something should be done to penpetuate 
the memory of their comrades who fell on the battlefields of 
France, the overseas veterans of the World War who returned 
to college in the fall of I9l9 organized themselves into a 
group which became known as the Overseas Club of Allegheny 
College. In order to make the organization a permanent in- 
stitution in Allegheny, the club has drafted a plan, whereby 
after the college year 1920-1921, membership will be elective 
without reference to overseas service with the land or naval 
forces of the United States. 

Accordingly, the club decided to build, in the form of an 
open-air theatre, a memorial to the Allegheny men who "paid 
the price" for their country. The work has been placed in 
the hands of committees. It is intended that the memorial 
shall be completed by 1923. It will be located at the south- 
ern end of the cam.pus ravine. 

The club has taken its stand with the American Legion 
in promoting the national observation of Armistice Day. 

Socially, the club is energetic, efficient, and thorough.

MUSICAL AND DRAMATIC CLUBS 
Girls' Glee Club 

The first move for the organization of a Girls' Glee Club 
in Allegheny College occurred October 21, 1911, when the 
matter was brought before the girls by the president of the 
Student Senate. The purpose of the organization was to give 
concerts on various occasions. A committee appointed for the 
purpose, decided that tryouts should be given under the super- 
vision of a com.petent director, the girls to be chosen solely 
on merit. 

On November 25, the club was formed with an enrollment 
of fifty-five members. The constitution drawn up by the com- 
mittee was read and approved. 

The marked success of the first concert given at the Stone 
Church in May 4, 1912, assured the future success of the club. 

The success which proclaimed the initial appearance of 
the girls has remained with them. Two concerts have been 
given each year, one in the fall, and one in the spring. Here- 
tofore, the concerts have always consisted of selections by the 
club featured by solos, but this year, a change has been made 
in that an operetta was produced. This proved to be a suc- 
cessful innovation, and the precedent will probably be fol- 
lowed in the future. 

Men's Glee Club 

The Glee Club has always a most prominent place in the 
social, musical life of Allegheny College. Its constant en- 
deavor has been to represent the college in the best possible 
manner. 

The club has been composed of four parts, each part aver- 
aging five or six men. A reader chosen on the competition 
basis has always been a prime factor in the organization. The 
Mandolin and Guitar Clubs have aided in giving a diversified 
program. 

Two concerts are usually given at home. Tri.ps often cov- 
ering three and four days, are made within a radius of one 
hundred and fifty miles of Meadville. 

The repertoire of the club has been of the highest stand- 



86 OLD ALLEGHENY 

ard, consisting of classical, secular, religious, humorous, negro 
and patriotic selections. 

Klee-O-Kleet 

Klee-0-KIeet, the young women's dramatic club, is a semi- 
secret, invitational society. The purpose of the club is to 
arouse and maintain dramatic interest among the women of 
the college, and to present one play each year. 

Competition for a part on the cast is open to all, but the 
membership of the society itself is limited to fifteen girls cf 
the senior and junior classes, who are re.presentative college 
girls, or noted for dramatic and managerial ability. 

Duzer Du 

Duzer Du is a semi-secret invitational organization, elec- 
tion to which is based on histrionic or managerial ability. 

The organization was founded in 1909 by nine members: 
Mr. W. G. Pixel, '10, was the first president. Since its or- 
ganization the club has produced ten plays, one each year. 
Due to the war, no plays were given in the years, 1917-18. 

The College Band 

An organization which takes a very prominent place in the 
life at Allegheny, is the College Band. It plays at all of the 
basket ball and football games, track meets, and college func- 
tions, and is always willing to lead the parades, and college 
demonstrations. 

Membership is open to all students, the .places on the band 
being filled by competition. Practices are held regularly and 
each player is compelled to keep up v/ith the work in every 
detail. 

The Mandolin Club 

One of the newest organizations on the Hill is the Man- 
dolin Club. 

In the years gone by, Allegheny has always taken a fore- 
most interest in music, her Glee Club has been of the best. 
She has had some very good Mandolin Clubs. However, this 
part of the musical life has never gained the desired perma- 
nency. 



OLD ALLEGHENY 87 

The Mandolin Club of 1920-21 seems to have come to 
stay. Expert instruction is given the men who try out, mem- 
bership being based upon ability. 

St. Cecelia Club 

In the spring of 1919, a new musical club was formed at 
Allegheny. Its character was quite different from any other 
in that its members had to be vocal or instrumental soloists. 
The club was called the St. Cecelia Club in honor cf St. Ce- 
celia, the patron saint of music. The purpose of the club was 
to give concerts or musical he!.p whenever called upon. The 
membership was limited to fifteen and only juniors and sen- 
iors admitted. Its first concert was given in the spring of 
1920 for the purpose of raising money for the Y. W. C. A. 
The outlook for the club is bright and it promises to be one 
of the most successful organizations in the college. 



ORGANIZATIONS 

The Women's Student Government 

The matter of securing discipline and good government in 
a student body has been quite simply solved at Allegheny Col- 
lege; for the establishment of the Women's Student Senate has 
proven a decided success. 

It is the purpose of the organization to foster and main- 
tain college customs and traditions, to govern the conduct of 
the women students (whenever it shall reflect upon the name 
of Allegheny), and to promote good relations between faculty 
and students. To this Women's Senate the college authorities 
intrust the management of all those matters concerning the 
conduct of the women students in their college life that are 
not strictly academic or that are not hereinafter exempt from 
such jurisdiction. 

The Men's Senate 

Soon after school opened in I9l6 certain men of the 
senior class drew up a constitution for a Senate. The con- 



88 OLD ALLEGHENY 

stitution met the approval of the students and in the s.pring 
of I9l7 the faculty gave their approval. 

The constitution as adopted provided for a Senate of seven 
members four of whom were to be seniors, two juniors and 
one sophomore. The Senate was composed entirely of men 
since the women already had their own organization. In cases 
involving both the men and women of the college the two Sen- 
ates were to meet together. The Men's Senate today super- 
vises elections, guards college traditions, enforces the honor 
system and co-operates with the Discipline Committee of the 
faculty in matters of student discipline. It is to the credit of 
the students of Allegheny themselves that the Senate has been 
so successful in all that it has undertaken. 

The Y. W. C. A. 

The Y. W. C. A. of Allegheny College is closely allied with 
the national organization. Similar to the latter, the Y. W. 
keeps in touch with every phase of life pertaining to the young 
women and endeavors to promote an unselfish, democratic, re- 
lationship among them. 

The work of the local Y. W. C. A. covers a broad field, 
capably handled by the various departments and committees. 
To keep in closer communication with the national Y. W. C. 
A. the conference committee sends delegates to the annual con- 
vention at Philadelphia, to the Eaglesmere Conference, and to 
such other conventions as may be called during the year. 

The high ideals of the Association and the co-operative 
spirit v/hich it encourages makes the Y. W. C. A. the most 
important organization in the college world. Its firm belief 
in the simplicity and honesty of human fellowship, and the 
enthusiasm with which it labors so unceasingly to maintain its 
ideals and to instill them into the minds and hearts of the 
new girls just entering college, render the Y. W. C. A. a most 
potent factor in the production of the new woman with her 
clear vision and her eagerness for helping humanity. 

The Student Volunteer Band 

The Student Volunteer Movement of North America is rep- 
resented in Allegheny College by the Student Volunteer Band. 



OLD ALLEGHENY 89 

This organization is composed of a grou.p of men and women 
of the college who have definitely stated their intention to 
spend their lives as foreign missionaries. It is, of course, 
realized that many of the volunteers, for various reasons, never 
reach the field. However, every member enters, with that 
purpose in mind. The plan of the Student Volunteer Band in 
Allegheny College is to exalt Christian standards in college 
life, to study the needs and problems of mission lands, and to 
present to students the opportunity for useful Christian work. 
Thus op.portunity is given to both those who are members, 
and those who are not, to meet and study missionary work. 
The moral ideal of consecrated life service is constantly kept 
in mind. 

Y. M. C. A. 

In searching through the annals of Allegheny we find the 
first mention of the Young Men's Christian Association in 187 5. 
The catalogue for the year 1875-76 gives a brief sketch of the 
Y. M. C. A. and states its purpose as, "an active organization 
of the Christian young men of the college for purposes of 
personal improvement and direct assistance in religious meet- 
ings which may be held in the churches of the city or sur- 
rounding country". 

The Y. M. C. A. held its meetings first in Bentley Hall then 
in the oratory of the Chapel, after it was built, and later when 
Cochran Hall was built, moved to its present location. 

Neighborhood work was ra.pidly developed in the first few 
years. Services were held in the county jail every Sunday 
morning, Sunday Schools were started in the old frame build- 
ing in Valonia, and in the Reisinger school house at Baldwin 
street. In 1900 the Reisinger school was given up. 

The first Student Handbook was published by Dr. Elliott 
in 1890 and has been continued almost without interruption 
ever since. These handbooks are distributed free of charge 
to the incoming freshmen. The first meetings beginning in 
1887 were held in the chapel and were for both men and 
women. They were led, for the most part, by members of the 
faculty. In 1897 or '98 the women started holding their own 
meetings and then in 1900, the faculty withdrew and the stu- 
dents have conducted their own services since that time. 



90 OLD ALLEGHENY 

In 1919-20 the college employed a general secretary, the 
Reverend Samuel L. Maxwell, an alumnus of the college, and 
a chaplain in the navy. During that year the Y. M. C. A. en- 
joyed the most prosperous year of its existence. 

The Y fills a very important -place in the life of the school. 
It is the one place where all the men of the school may meet 
together on a common footing to discuss problems that con- 
cern them or the school and to have a jolly good time. The 
association meetings are not in any sense prayer meetings 
alone, but meetings at which all will feel free to talk and no 
one to be embarrassed in any way. At times professors are 
asked to take charge of the meetings, and in other instances 
well known business and professional men of the city or sur- 
rounding cities have given vocational talks. 

The social life of the college is contributed to by the Y in 
the annual Y. M.-Y. W. reception to the new students. This 
reception is given early in the school year. 



STUDENT PUBLICATIONS 
The Campus 

The one-hundredth anniversary of American Independence, 
1876, is memorable in the journalistic life of Allegheny College 
as the date of the establishment of The Campus, the weekly 
news-paper of student life en the Hill. 

Every phase of college life is thoroughly aired in the 
columns of this breezy sheet. Although the immediate policy 
of The Campus varies from year to year, depending on the in- 
dividual policy of the editor, in its general policy, The Campus 
has never failed to give full support to all worthy student ac- 
tivities, and through its columns many changes and reforms 
have been advocated which have later been embodied in the 
conduct of the college. In short, it performs all the functions 
of a well edited and thoroughly organized college news.paper. 

Members of The Campus staff receive practical training in 
the fundamentals of newspaper work, and many former staff 
members have risen to journalistic prominence. Positions on 
the staff are on a competitive basis. 



OLD ALLEGHENY 9I 

The Kaldron 

To the class of '89 belongs the credit of starting this an- 
nual. Acting on the suggestion of William McNair, Jr., the 
class voted early in its junior year to be responsible for 
such a publication and entrusted the work to a board of edi- 
tors of whom McNair was chosen chairman. F. C. Howe and 
C. C. Laffer were two of the three business managers and 
among the other editors was W. A. Elliott. The book appeared 
in June '88 and made a real sensation in the then small col- 
lege world. It was bound in white and gold the class colors. 
The class of '90 followed the lead of their rivals and published 
their Kaldron in June 1889. For various reasons the tpublica- 
tion of such a book by the junior classes was not satisfactory 
and the work was taken up by the fraternities. A Board of 
Control, one member from each of the fraternities, elected the 
editorial and business staff. Gradually the support and co- 
operation of the non-fraternity students were sought and they 
were given representation on the board of editors. The 1906 
Kaldron bears on its title page the words Compiled by a Board 
of Editors! published by the Fraternities. In 1910 a system 
was put into operation whereby those students who made an 
advance -payment on the Kaldron for the current year voted 
for members of an Electoral Board, which in turn chose the 
editors and the business managers. This system continued 
until replaced by the creation of the Publications Board having 
direction of the Kaldron, Campus, and Literary Monthly. 

Only once since June 1888 has the Kaldron failed to ap- 
pear about Commencement time. That was in the year, I9l7. 
This lapse was atoned for the following year, when a double 
volume was published. 

At intervals some system of censorship or faculty su'pervis- 
ion an advisory committee has been in effect but for the most 
part the book has been the result of unfettered student ex- 
pression and enterprise. With very few exceptions the editors 
have justified the confidence given them and have put out a 
book worthy of Old Allegheny. 

Literary Monthly. 

The Allegheny Literary Monthly was founded in October, 
1896, in answer to the need of an organ to express and en- 



92 OLD ALLEGHENY 

courage the literary production of the college. Its two-fold 
purpose as laid down in the tirst editorial, was the fostering of 
the literary ability of the students and maintenance of the in- 
terest of the alumni in their Alma Mater. The early volumes 
of the magazine contained many articles from the alumni. The 
poetry was commendable but there was a lack of fiction. The 
alumni feature has been largely abandoned in late years on 
account of a lack of support by the graduates; fiction of the 
short story ty-pe and humorous productions have been more 
and more encouraged. 

Before the adoption of the budget system for the college 
publication in 1920 the Monthly had an uphill struggle for 
existence; for this reason some cf the volumes were irregular 
in appearance and incomplete in number of issues, especially 
during the war years. With the budget system these causes of 
criticism should be removed and the greatly enlarged circula- 
tion has resulted in a marked increase of interest among the 
student body. The choice of editors is competitive and acts as 
an incentive to literary effort and encourages the journalistic 
talent of the college. 

The Student's Manual 

The Student's Manual, or, as it is familiarly known, The 
Freshman Bible, is a yearly handbook of Allegheny. A board 
appointed by the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. issues the little 
book just before school opens for the fall term. It is given 
free to all new students. The book is paid for by advertise- 
ments. 



ORATORY AND DEBATE 

Oratorical Association 

The entire field of oratory and debate in Allegheny Col- 
lege is supported and controlled by the Oratorical Association 
of which every student is a member. The various forms of 
oratory and debate controlled by the association are the Philo- 
Franklin Forum, the Philo-Franklin Oratorical Contest, the 
Wakefield Oratorical Contest, the Intercollegiate Oratorical 



OLD ALLEGHENY 93 

Contest, the Freshman-Sophomore Debate, the Intercollegiate 
Debates, and the Extemporaneous Speaking Contests. 

Philo-Franklin Forum 

The man who has a college education but can not make a 
speech is like a man who has a bank account but can not get 
a check cashed. It is the work of the Forum to "identify" the 
Allegheny man — to train him to speak in .public — so that he 
can take a leading place in his professional or commercial 
world. 

One of the phenomena of our modern American life is the 
multiplication of societies and associations with their annual 
conventions and conferences and their more frequent local 
meetings. There is probably not one trade, profession or in- 
dustry that does not have at least one such society or associa- 
tion, and the men who can speak at all is eagerly sought after 
to take a part in the proceedings. He at once becomes a 
leader among his associates. The news.papers have not re- 
duced the demand for public speakers but rather have multi- 
plied the size of the audiences, for those who do not hear the 
speech will read it in a newspaper the next morning or in the 
next number of the association's magazine. 

In one technical school the students in architecture are re- 
quired to study public speaking as well as design so that they 
can not only make good plans but also have them adopted. 

The Philo-Franklin Forum is the successor of the Philo- 
Franklin Literary Society which was founded in 183 4 
"to realize the good, the true and the beautiful". (Kaldron 
1890). The last notice given to the society by the Kaldron 
was in 1906. The first attention given to the Forum by the 
Kaldron was in 1908 where we find this brief mention (page 
133): 

The Forum 

Under the efficient direction of Professor Brown the Forum 
promotes interest in debate and public address. A speaker 
presides over each succeeding meeting. 

The work of the Forum as now carried on centers about 
debate, extemporaneous speaking and parliamentary procedure; 
frequently the program provides for all three. The members 



94 OLD ALLEGHENY 

may resolve themselves into congress or a legislature; then a 
would-be 'party leader introduces a measure; it is spiritedly de- 
bated by men previously selected by Dr. Swartley, after which 
extemporaneous speeches are made by those present; then if 
the opponents cf the measure are not too skillful in sidetrack- 
ing the measure by parliamentary methods it may be passed. 
Some meetings are given over entirely to a study of the Rules 
of Order. 

The first meeting of each year is open to all men; those 
wishing to become members may tile ap'plications for member- 
ship with the secretary any time after that. 

Intercollegiate Debating 

Intercollegiate debating at Allegheny dates from April 14, 
1898, when Allegheny supported the negative side of the 
proposition "that Hawaii should be annexed to the United 
States". Bucknell University supported the affirmative and 
lost. The contest was held in the Court House under the 
auspices of the Baraca Union of the local Ba.ptist church. 

Allegheny now engages in at least cne intercollegiate de- 
bate each year. This has in recent years been in the form of 
a triangular debate generally with the University of Pitts- 
burg, and Wooster University. Each college has an atiirmative 
and a negative team; the affirmative team stays at home and 
the negative goes away; three debates are thus held simul- 
taneously at the three colleges. Washington and Jefferson 
College and Ohio University are frequent participants in the 
triangular debates. 

Allegheny's success in debating has been due in large part 
to the support given by Delta Sigma Rho, to the training given 
by the Philo-Franklin Forum, the Freshman-Sophomore De- 
bate, and to the special coaching given by the Faculty Ora- 
torical Committee. 

Wakefield Oratorical Contest 

Of the two oratorical contests held at Allegheny the Wake- 
field is generally considered the more important the prize be- 
ing larger (fifty dollars) and eligibility to -participate being 
limited to sophomores, juniors and seniors. The money for 



OLD ALLEGHENY 95 

the prize has been given each year by James Alfred Wakefield, 
an alumnus of the college of the class of '90. About three 
weeks before the contest the eligible students submit orations 
to a committee of judges that select from among those sub- 
mitted the best six. These are then delivered on the night of 
the contest in Ford Memorial Chapel. The orations are about 
twelve minutes in length. The winner not only has won dis- 
tinction and a prize of considerable value but he also then has 
the privilege of representing the college in the Intercollegiate 
Oratorical Contest. 

Intercollegiate Oratorical Contest 

The first intercollegiate oratorical contest in which Alle- 
gheny participated was held at Chautauqua, New York, en July 
27, 1888. Five colleges were entered against Allegheny but 
Frank A. Cattern won the prize of one hundred dollars; his 
subject was "American Feudalism". Dr. J. M. Buckley, editor 
of the New York Christian Advocate, presided. The Kaldron 
of 1890 gives a very gra.phic description how the Allegheny 
students who were present (there were several rows of them 
in one section of the auditorium) celebrated the victory by 
cheering the victor and then bearing him away in triumph. 
They took a steam yacht and sailed up and down the lake 
wildly cheering and astonishing the staid citizens on the shore 
who of course were not so intensely interested. Allegheny has 
had her share of victories but one at least deserves special men- 
tion. In 1902 Robert Freeman wen honor for himself and the 
college when he won the contest in Meadville against repre- 
sentatives from six other colleges. 

The association has included various colleges at different 
times but those that now participate are Colgate, University 
of Pittsburgh, Ohio Wesleyan University, University of Woo- 
ster and Allegheny College. 

Freshman-Sophomore Debate 

The annual debate between the freshmen and sophomores 
gives the under classmen a chance to show which class is 
superior when it comes to handling convincing arguments. It 
also develo'ps material for the varsity teams. The first debate 
between the under classmen was in the fall of I9l6. A ban- 



96 OLD ALLEGHENY 

ner has been placed in the Library and each year the winning 
class has its numerals added to those of the .previous winners. 

Philo-Franklin Oratorical Contest 

The Philo-Franklin Oratorical Contest is held each spring 
sometime before the Wakefield Contest. Members of the 
Forum are eligible to compete. The two prizes of $\S and 
510 are derived from funds given the Philo-Franklin Literary 
Society (1834-1890). Many men make their first appearance 
before a college audience when they appear in this contest. 

Recent Additions 

During the past year attention has been turned to the ex- 
tem.poraneous speaking contest. The contest for the men con- 
sisted of two parts; first, there were six declamations (pre- 
pared in advance), then extemporaneous speeches by six other 
men who had received notice of the subject only, an hour 
previous. The contest for the young women was conducted 
in a similar manner. 



ATHLETICS 

The Athletic Association 

Athletics in Allegheny College, are fostered and maintained 
by an organization known as the Allegheny College Athletic 
Association. This organization is composed of the students 
and faculty members, every student automatically becoming a 
member upon registration, and payment of the regular athletic 
fee. A card is issued to every student wh'.ch entitles him to 
admission to all athletic meets held during the year. 

The officers of the association consist of a president, sec- 
retary, treasurer, and a delegate-at-large. The .president and 
delegate-at-large are chcsen from the seniors, and the secre- 
tary from the juniors or seniors by a general college election 
of the men of the student body. The treasurer is a faculty 
member of the Athletic Committee and is elected by the Ath- 
letic Council. 

The Athletic Board, or what may be styled the executive 
council of the Athletic Association, has charge of the arrange- 



OLD ALLEGHENY 97 

ment of schedules, control of finances and the general super- 
vision of the athletic policy of the school. It is composed of 
the faculty committee on athletics and gymnastics, together 
with the president, secretary, and delegate-at-large of the Ath- 
letic Association and the managers of the various parts. 

It is the duty of this board to carry out the provisions of 
the constitution of the Athletic Association, to approve all 
games and contracts, to award Block A's, to supervise the ex- 
penditure of the athletic funds and in general to exercise su.per- 
vision over the athletic interests of the college. 

Managers of all major sports are elected on competitive 
basis by a board for the Selection of Managers, composed of 
various members of the Athletic Council. Competitors are 
assigned various tasks during their period of trial and are 
finally selected for their efficiency, ability, conduct and spirit 
displayed. 

Captains of the athletic teams are elected by the members 
of the teams. All men who have partici.pated in half of the 
games of the last half of the season are eligible for vote for 
captain unless debarred by the Athletic Council for misconduct. 

Physical Training 

The object of this department is to promote health, insure 
the strength and secure the symmetrical development of the 
students. 

Physical measurements are taken upon entrance, and at 
other times throughout the college course. These determine 
the needs of the student and the training necessary for his 
welfare. 

Instead of the old system of class drill and exercise, a new 
system has been instituted. Games are now played by every 
one, similar to the varsity sports. The new and large gym- 
nasium has made this change possible. A certain amount of 
exercise will be required. 

The women are also given physical training in their gym- 
nasium in Hulings Hall. Rythmic ex.pression is taught by com- 
petent instructors. Basket ball and other indoor sports are 
carried on in a -program adapted to their needs. Competitive 



98 OLD ALLEGHENY 

outdoor work, hikes, etc., are encouraged by the Girls' Ath- 
letic Club. 

The whole system is now under the direction of an athletic 
board who looks after the general athletic activity of the stu- 
dents and supervises the work of the especially trained coaches. 

The new ^100,000 appro.priation fcr athletics is expected to 
transform athletics at Allegheny College. 

Basket Ball 

Allegheny's basket ball teams have long been a source of 
pride to her students and graduates. Long before the floor 
game had developed into a national intercollegiate institution, 
Allegheny was winning consistent victories with independent 
teams representing the towns in the region surrounding Mead- 
ville. Then as the colleges and universities adopted the game 
as a major indoor sport, Allegheny forged to the front with the 
prowess which her teams had accomplished in develo.ping the 
game. With the opening of the college gymnasium in 1896, 
Allegheny began to establish her basket ball supremacy. The 
teams of '97, '00, '06 and '07 will long live in the memory of 
the older graduates; while the teams of I9l2 and I9l5 will be 
remembered by all as the best which have ever been produced 
of the college. 

With the opening of the ^100,000 gymnasium with its ex- 
cellent playing floor, the outlook for future teams is evceed- 
ingly bright. With the facilities aflforded them there is no rea- 
son why the students of old Allegheny may not be able to 
perpetuate her fame on the floor.

Baseball 

Since l9l5, baseball has been a minor sport at Allegheny, 
and the school has not maintained a varsity team. Lack of 
athletic material, shortness of the .playing season, and the com- 
petition with professional teams of the surrounding territory 
necessitated discontinuing this sport. However, student in- 
terest in the national game has guaranteed the maintainance 
of the sport as a branch of intra-mural athletics, and each 
spring regularly sees interclass or interfraternity tournaments 
on Montgomery Field, which affords a tlrst-class diamond. Al- 
though no official action has been taken in regard to rein- 
stating baseball as a major sport, student sentiment seems to 
point towards such action, and the course of a few years may 
see Allegheny again represented in collegiate baseball circles. 

Football 

Although adhering very strictly to amateur and collegiate 
eligibility regulations, Allegheny's football teams rank con- 
sistently among the best in the small college class. The an- 
nual meeting of the Gold and Blue with Carnegie Tech is al- 
ways looked forward to by the numerous Allegheny alumni of 
the Pittsburgh district, while the yearly "grudge clash" with 
Grove City is considered the football classic of northwestern 
Pennsylvania. In addition to these annual contests with neigh- 
boring schools, the annual game with Colgate, at Hamilton is 
watched by the school with intense interest. By means of this 



100 OLD ALLEGHENY 

game Allegheny's football prowess can yearly be compared with 
the leading eastern teams. It is an accepted fact that Alle- 
gheny possesses the best college football tield in western Penn- 
sylvania. Montgomery Field, situated at the rear of the gym- 
nasium is complete in every respect for the accommodation 
of teams and spectators. 

With the advent of the new athletic policy with its larger 
appropriations, Allegheny's football outlook is exceedingly 
bright. With proper coaches and equi.pment, which are now 
furnished, Allegheny promises to occupy a most conspicuous 
place in college football.

Track and Tennis 

Springtime and early fall are not without their athletic ac- 
tivities. When baseball was given up in 191 5, Allegheny 
stepped forward with a llrst-class track team. A live interest 
had been dis.played in this branch of athletics and some very 
good and successful teams have competed for first collegiate 
honors in western Pennsylvania. 

Tennis, the sport which appeals to all live blooded college 
men, has been a factor in the spring term at Allegheny. Every 
fraternity has its own tennis court, and two good courts are 
maintained by the college for the use of the non-fraternity 
men. The girls are supplied with excellent courts in the rear 
of Hulings Hall. Matches are held with the leading colleges 
of western Pennsylvania, and Allegheny has always been at or 
near the top. 

Cross-Country Run 

The cross-country run is becoming a firmly established 
event in the fall season. A three-mile course is set; gold, 
silver and bronze prizes being given to the winners. 

Boxing and Wrestling 

As part of a well organized athletic program, boxing and 
wrestling have won a .prominent place among the men of the 
college. Every provision has been made by the athletic board 
for the furtherance of this sport; es'pecial rooms, with com- 
plete equipment, are maintained in the gymnasium, and thor- 
ough instruction is given to all men of the college who desire it. 
For training purposes, participants in these sports are carefully 
matched so that the odds shall be equal. 

The annual boxing and wrestling tournament is one of the 
big events of the college year. Aside from the tournament, 
there are numerous interclass and interfraternity matches 
which never fail to arouse interest. The sport was revived 
with intense interest after the World War, and has been stead- 
ily gaining in popularity. 

Bowling 

Four good bowling alleys are maintained by the college in 
the basement of Cochran Hall, for the use of the men students. 



102 OLD ALLEGHENY 

Alleys for the girls are likewise maintained in the basement of 
Hulings Hall. Players are charged a mimimum amount to 
cover the current expense of upkeep and management. 

Each year, interfraternity tournaments are held. A live- 
ly interest is maintained through the -purse, and through the 
presentation of a trophy cup to the winning team. 

Winter Sports — Hockey 

Basket ball will not be the only athletic sport at Allegheny 
this winter. Not the least of many new things started in the 
old college during the year of 1920-21 is the advent of the 
skating rink and hockey held. Preparations have been made 
to flood a portion of Montgomery Field and all that is needed 
for a lively season of skating, is good zero weather.

(Words and Music by Ross B. Litten, '12) 
Hail, fair college on the hill, 
Al-le-ghe-ny, 

None like thee our hearts can thrill, 
Dear Allegheny. 
Gold of sunset, ocean's blue. 
Blended in a flag for you. 
Emblem old yet ever new, of AUeghe. 

Chorus: 

Fair Alma Mater, 

Each son and daughter, e'er will be true to thee, 

Old Alleghe. 

Farewell college on the hill, 

Al-le-ghe-ny, 

At our .parting eyes will fill 

For Allegheny; 

Tho' our paths lie far or near. 



I04 OLD ALLEGHENY 

We shall tread them without fear, 
Cherishing the memory dear 
Of Alleghe. 

Chorus: 

Loud Let the Sons 

(Tune from Wesleyan Songs — words by R. G. Freeman, '04) 

Loud let the sons of Harvard sing, 

The sons of Eli, too; 
Long may the praise resound and ring 

Of the good told red and blue. 
But in our hearts the deepest chord 

Resounds from day to day. 
Where e'er we hear that sweetest word. 

Thy name, dear Alleghe. 

Chorus: 

Where e'er we stray o'er land and sea, 
Dear Alleghe, we'll think of thee; 
We'll dream of thee, where'er we roam. 
Our dear old college home. 

We love thy flag of gold and blue. 

We love each sacred stone. 
We love thy fair green campus, too. 

And feel it is our own. 
We love each ringing college song. 

And this we vow today, 
We'll make resound, both loud and long, 

Thy name, dear Alleghe. 

Chorus: 

Hail Allegheny 

(Presented to Allegheny by Carson Miller) 
Dear Allegheny, dear old Allegheny, 
We do love thy old, old places. 
We do yearn for thy embraces. 
Dear Allegheny, dear old Alma Mater, 
We will ever loyal be. 
To thee, Alleghe! 



OLD ALLEGHENY IO5 

Hail to thee, Allegheny, 
Hail the Gold and the Blue, 
We to thee will be loyal. 
Faithful, staunch and true. 
We will sing thy praises. 
May thy colors ever wave on high. 
We will shout for thee, Allegheny, 
Hail Alleghe! 

I Went to See My Suiie 

I went to see my Susie, 

She met me at the door, 
She told me that I need not come 

Tio see her any more. 
She'd fallen in love with another, 

Named Andrew Jackson Payne, 
So here's farewell to all true love. 

Chorus: 

And farewell, Allegheny, 

Alma Mater, fare thee well. 
We now must leave thee, 

Leave the home we love so well. 

Allegheny Forever 

(George S. Crisswell, '10) 

Allegheny for evermore 

There's not a place like unto her. 

There is where the good fellows are, 

The lovely girls are ever there a-singing, singing, 

Allegheny for evermore, 

And all thy sons shall shout for thee, 

Allegerhu-ge-rhu Wah hoo-ba-zoo 

Old Allegheny forever. 

Allegheny for evermore, 

Then wave on high her gold and blue, 

There we have our greatest joys. 

There's where we make our loudest noise, a-rooting, rooting.

Allegheny for evermore, 

And let it ring from shore to shore,

Sing Her Praises 

(Wiords by L. C. Harris, '11) 

Near the vale where Cussewago 

Winds its silent way, 
There amid the tree-clad hill-tops. 

Stands old Allege. 

Chorus: 

Sing her praises loud resounding, 

Speed them on their v/ay: 
True to thee we'll be for ever. 

True to Alleghe. 

All thy halls, the day, in dying 

Crown with golden light, 
Then the morn with waking s.plendor, 

Greets thee in thy might. 

Chorus: 

Dear Alleghenia 

(Words by R. B. Kightlinger) 
Dear Alleghenia, the place we love. 
Thy grand old campus fair with heavens above. 
There we do work and play the livelong day. 
And feel that we could die for Alleghe. 

Dear Alleghenia, to thee we sing. 
Long may thy songs resound and praises ring. 
And this we vow today that be where we may, 
We'll bring fame both great and proud to Alleghe.

COLLEGE HYMN 
Alma Mater. 

(Austria, No. 114) 

Allegheny, Gracious Mother, 

All thy sons shall sing thy praise, 
And, in love of one another. 

Cherish thee through all our days. 
Now, when shoulder touches shoulder. 

And the wine of life is new. 
Then, when parted and grown older, 

Ever shall our love be true. 

Strong the hands that toiled to make thee; 

Warm the hearts that planned thy birth; 
Naught should ever come to break thee 

While the sun gave light to earth. 
Unto them be praise and glory; 

Unto them give homage due; 
Fame be theirs in song and story. 

Ringing down long ages through. 

So may we in consecration 

Hearts and hands to thee devote, 
Blest in holy inspiration — 

Heritage of time remote. 
In thy faith and virtue serving. 

In the knowledge thou dost give, 
May we, from thy truth unswerving. 

Live as thou hast bade us live. 

O'er thy cam.pus skies are bluer 

Than in all the world beside, 
And thy children's hearts beat truer 

Than the pulse of ocean's tide, 
Allegheny, Gracious Mother, 

All thy sons shall sing thy praise, 
And, in love of one another. 

Cherish thee through all our days. 

— Alumnus, 
(Repeat last two lines of each stanza.)

GREEK LETTER FRATERNITIES 

All fraternities of Allegheny College are invitational. A 
high moral and intellectual standing is required to gain en- 
trance to any of the organizations. This standing is not only 
maintained by the students, hut also, is required by the ad- 
ministration. 

Social functions are supervised by a faculty committee, 
and permission for all fraternity parties must be had from 
this committee, before the party can be held. 

Rowdyism is prohibited in all fraternity houses. Very 
rigid house rules are maintained, and the fraternities of Alle- 
gheny College are of the highest ty.pe. Living expenses are 
normal. 

Penna. Beta Chapter of Phi Kappa Psi 

The Phi Kappa Psi fraternity was founded at Jefferson 
College, February 19, 185 2, by Charles P. T. Moore and Wil- 
liam H. Letterman. A warm friendship formed in the trying 
times of a fever epidemic ripened into the fraternal sentiment 
which led to the foundation of the fraternity. The fraternity 
is primarily social in its nature; it aims to stimulate and de-

velop the hi^t,diest ty.pe icf manhood and to promote scholarship 
and high ideals through the media of its teachings and the 
fraternal contact between its members. Membership is lim- 
ited to those undergraduates in actual attendance at school 
where a chapter is located who do not belong to any organi- 
zation of similar character. There are now fcrty-six active 
chapters. In 185 5 the Penna. Beta Chapter was founded at 
Allegheny College; Mr. Thomas Rustin Kennedy after spend- 
ing two years in Allegheny transferred to Washington and 
Jefferson when he joined Phi Kappa Psi, later returning to 
found the local chapter. It was the first fraternity installed 
here. The charter members are Z. R. Bratt, J. F. McDowell, 
Nelson Green, W. B. Holt, O. S. Long, F. M. Gregg, Geo. W. 
JefTers, and W. D. Stevens. 

During the recent war with Germany the chapter under- 
went a severe strain. However, recovery was immediate and 
com.plete, and today Phi Kappa Psi stands ready and strong as 
ever. 

Pi Chapter of Phi Gamma Delta 

Pi Chapter of Phi Gamma Delta the second fraternity of 
Allegheny College founded in i860, by a group of students 
under the direction of Marcus Hotchkiss, '68, and J. B. Rein- 
holdt, '60. Their purpose was that of reform. 

The charter was secured in June i860, and installation 
took place immediately. H. L. Richmond, H. S. Johnsisn, R. 
S. Mclntire, J. B. Reinholdt, F. W. Hays, F. P. Ray, E. H. Hen- 
derson, and F. W. Broggins were initiated the first night. On 
the following night J. J. Henderson, R. C. Frey, Louis Hamil- 
ton, J. M. Wells, Frank Custard, Andrew Johnston, A. M. Wil- 
liams, and J. C. Smullen, classes '60-'64 were initiated. The 
place of installation was in the office building of H. L. Rich- 
mond. 

The first permanent chapter was in the Barton House. 
After many changes, suitable rooms were found in the Rich- 
mond Block where the cha.pter remained, 1881-88. In 1888, 
the first chapter home on the Hill was occupied, the present 
home of the president. In 1897, a new chapter home was 
erected at the corner of Park avenue and Loomis street. In 
1903, the frame building at 553 Park avenue was purchased.

Phi Gamma Delta House 



This socn became too small, and in I9i4, by the generosity 
cf the alumni, the present modern home was built. 

The initiates of Pi Chapter number 466, of these, 41 have 
been awarded Phi Beta Kappa. In July 1914, Pi Cha.pter was 
awarded the Cheney Efficiency Cup for the most efficient chap- 
ter of Phi Gamma Delta of the preceding year. Since its 
founding, it has had considerable influence in the national fra- 
ternity, and has been the mother of many other chapters. 

The years I9l8-l9 were strenuous ones. The chapter 
had net been tried so seriously since the outbreak of the Civil 
War. Out of over thirty men in the service all but one came 
back to visit us, or to enter school as active members. Ralph 
E. Graham, '18, U. S. aviator, was killed at Cametheis Field, 
Texas, whils in pursuit of duty. 

Alpha Chapter of Delta Tau Delta 

Delta Tau Delta Delta was founded at Bethany College, West 
Virginia, by Richard Alfred, Eugene Tarr, J. L. Hunt, J. C. 
Lowe, Henry Bell and Wm. R. Cunningham. An informal or- 
ganization was affected in the spring term of 1858, but the 



OLD ALLEGHENY 



III 



adoption of the motto, badge and constitution did not occur 
until February 1859. 

The parent chapter established several other chapters but 
owing to the war these soon ceased to exist. The Bethany 
chapter reorganized in 1865 and continued as the head chap- 
ter until 1874, when its charter was withdrawn and the ad- 
ministration of the affairs of the fraternity passed to Alpha 
cha.pter at Allegheny College, established in 1863. In 1883 
the executive committee was appointed with full power of

government and the present system of alumni supervision was 
installed. 

Alpha chapter has had a long struggle to exist as a chap- 
ter during the years from 1865 to 1890, but from the later 
date the alumni of the chapter, through the force of example 
and by strenuous effort, established the actives in a suitable 
house and the beginning of a successful career was glimpsed. 
The .present location was not obtained until l9lO when, 
through the generosity of the town alumni, the chapter came 
into full ownership of the old Dick mansion. From time to 
time various improvements have been made until at this date,

1920, the present valuation of the house and property amounts 
to ^40,000. 

The total membership of Alpha chapter is now 5 12 and 
among its .prominent alumni are listed the names of: Bishop 
Locke, Bishop Mitchell, Frederick Palmer, war correspondent, 
David Jameson, James Wakefield, Colonel Walker, Percy Cul- 
lum, Arthur Gill and many others. 

Penna Delta Chapter of Phi Delta Theta 

The fourth fraternity to gain recognition in Allegheny Col- 
lege was Pennsylvania Delta Chapter of Phi Delta Theta. The 
remarkable growth of the college after the Civil War had 
created a demand for another band of Greeks. With this end 
in view, a group of young men, under the leadership of Emery 
Alden Nelson, '79, petitioned the National Grand Chapter of 
Phi Delta Theta, then located at Lafayette College, Easton, Pa. 

The charter was granted May 8, 1879, to fifteen charter 
members, including the founders, E. A. Nelson, W. Bowser, C. 
W. Miner, A. D. Collins, J. A. Vance, and E. W. Peck. A short 
time after, on May 30, 1879, Brother J. A. Langfitt, of Wash- 
ington and Jefferson College, installed the chapter and in-

OLD ALLEGHENY II3 

itiated the tifteen charter members, the ceremony taking place 
in the Commercial Hotel, now the Lafayette. 

Meeting rooms were at first rented, the location changing 
from the Lafayette Hotel to the McHenry House, to the Phoe- 
nix Block and then to the Kitchen Block, where the cha.pter 
entertained the Alpha Province convention; then to 313 West 
College street. In 1895, the chapter was moved to Loomis 
street, and finally to its present home, 662 Highland avenue, in 
the spring of 1890. In 1902, the Phi Delts became the first 
fraternity to own its own property, and in 191 5, the mortgage 
papers were burned. Many improvements have since been 
made on the proiperty, amounting to several thousands of dol- 
lars, due to the loyalty of the alumni and trustees. 

During the recent war with Germany, the enrollment of 
the cha.pter was greatly depleted. A complete recovery has 
been made however, and now. Phi Delta Theta stands as it was 
before, ready to lead for a higher plane of manhood and Chris- 
tian development. 

Penna. Delta has initiated 33 5 men; 210 have received di- 
plomas, and 3 04 members are still living. 

Penna. Omega Chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. 

The nucleus -of Pennsylvania Omega was a club formed in 
1885 by four chums attending Allegheny. They organized 
under the name of C. O. V. The organization prospered and 
during the next two years came to occupy a prominent -place 
in the college life. During this period the need of a closer 
fellowship and fraternal spirit was pressed so strongly upon 
them that they finally decided to seek national affiliation. This 
decision culminated in the petitioning to S. A. E. for a charter 
in December, 1886. The charter was granted, and on March 
5, 188 7, C. O. V. became Pennsylvania, Omega, S. A. E. 

The eleven charter members immediately started to make 
S. A. E. mean something in Allegheny College, and to make 
Penna. Omega mean something in S. A. E. In both of these 
endeavors, they, with their successors, have been at least 
creditably successful. Naturally they have had their stormy 
periods. They came in 1887 and in l9l7, but they recovered 
splendidly from the first, and were able in 1908 to .purchase 



114 



OLD ALLEGHENY 




Sigma Alpha Epsilon House 

the property now owned by the chapter. The stormy period 
of I9l7 to I9l9 was due to the activities of the members in 
the army and navy. Immediately upon the entrance of the 
United States into the World War, eight members of the chap- 
ter enlisted in the Base Hospital No. 4 unit and were among 
the first American soldiers in France. From that time until 
the armistics was signed, the members left at regular intervals 
to join the various branches of the service, so that in the fall 
of 19 1 7 only live men returned to school. Despite this severe 
handicap they were able to survive the trying .period and by 
the year 1919-20 were on a sound basis and exerting their 
strongest efforts towards the betterment of Allegheny. 



Phi Iota Chapter of Alpha Chi Rho. 

In the latter part of May, 1904, John R. Giblyn, George 
H Rowley, and Thomas K. Fornear, students of Allegheny Col- 
lege, conceived the idea of a society for the promotion of 
scholarship and true fraternal spirit among its members. Their 
plans did not fully mature until March of the following year, 
when a new organization known as Theta Delta Psi, was given 
faculty recognition. The charter members were as follows: 



OLD ALLEGHENY 



115 



John R. Biblyn, George H. Rowley, Thomas K, Fornear, W. B. 
Hotson, C. M. Hotson, A. A. Hoch, F. G. Smith, R. Parker 
Andrews, F. A. Hewit, and C. R. Dye. 

At first the young organization had quarters in the brick 
house at the corner of Park avenue and Locust street, from 
there to a large stone house, on Highland avenue, owned by 
Colonel Dick. Here they remained until 1909, at which time 
they moved to the house at 591 North Park avenue. 

From its earliest days, the policy of Alpha Chi Rho has 
been very conservative. Its members are characterized by 




Alpha Chi Kho House 

their loyalty, brotherly love, Christian s.pirit and their true 
intrinsic value. 

Since its institution in 1914, Phi Iota chapter has enjoyed 
a healthy growth. It weathered the storm incidental to the 
Great War and is today stronger than ever before. With ap- 
proximately one hundred members, and with absolutely no out- 
side aid, it has purchased the Hempstead residence at 660 
North Main street, and has occupied it for a chapter home after 
making some improvements, all through individual pledges 
and within six years after the instituting of the chapter. 



Il6 OLD ALLEGHENY 

The Allegheny Club. 

In view of the ra.pid growth of Allegheny's student body 
the need for an organization to promote the welfare of the 
increasing number of non-fraternity men became urgent. In 
the fall of 19 19, the Allegheny Club was founded. The con- 
stitution was formulated with such broad principles and with 
an openness that at once dispelled any hint of its being a 
secret society. From the very beginning active steps were 
taken to encourage among the members a spirit of good fel- 
lowship and a loyalty to the ideals and traditions of Old Alle- 
gheny. 

In the spring of 1920 the use of Cochran Hall as a club 
house was obtained from the college authorities. The open- 
ing of the 1920-21 term found the Allegheny Club with an 
excellent organization, and a .permanent home. 

Though in itself the association is yet young, its forma- 
tion was the crystalization of ideas that were prompted by a 
long felt want. At present the club is bending every effort 
to the filling of this want. Not only does it offer a home to 
the non-fraternity man; it extends as well a welcome to the 
new AUeghenian who does not enter a Greek letter fraternity, 
and offers to guide h'.m to a better understanding and a fuller 
appreciation of the institution he attends. 

Beta Upsilon 

Beta Upsilon, the latest addition to the fraternity group at 
the college, received official faculty recognition on February 
22d, 1920. The need of a new fraternity had been evident 
for several years. The older fraternities, limited in member- 
ship, had net been able to keep pace with the increasing en- 
rollment of the college, and many desirable men were being de- 
prived of the advantages of fraternity life. 

To meet this need, J. F. Bernard, L. A. Clough, M. S. 
Stewart, W. C. Thoburn, A. W. Beattie, G. R. Bushyager, R. H. 
Kelly, R. C. Limber, J. B. Proper, F. E. Smith, E. N. Emery, 
B. B. Mack and C. S. Thoburn, organized themselves, late in 
1920, as a new fraternity. Beta Upsilon was chosen as the 
name of the new organization. A constitution was drawn u.p, 
setting forth the aims of the fraternity. A petition for recog- 



OLD ALLEGHENY 



117 



nition was submitted to the faculty, and a unanimous vote of 
approval was the result. The original fourteen men pledged 
eighteen men, who were initiated on March 7. 

Beta Upsilon has stepped into its place among the fra- 
ternities on the Hill, and is becoming a strong factor in the 
college life. It has ambitious plans for the future. Negotia- 
tions for the acquisition of a suitable fraternity house are un- 
der way. 

The insignia of the fraternity is a pentagonal .pin, bearing 
upon it the Greek letters of the fraternity, two stars and a 
dagger.

SORORITIES 

Mu Chapter Kappa Alpha Theta 

In 1876 Austa Deiismore, one of the few girls then at- 
tending Allegheny College, went to Greencastle, Indiana. Dur- 
ing her abserce she was initiated into Kap.pa Alpha Theta. 
Feeling, on her return she had something worth passing on, 
she initiated Fell Albertson, Margaret Hartman and Carrie 
Wythe Williams. Throughout the year this sub rosa chapter 
existed in the hope that it would become tlrmly established. 




Kappa Alpha Theta 

Carrie Williams was the only Theta to return the following 
year. The first person to whom she mentioned fraternity dis- 
approved so strongly that she became disheartened and her 
efforts to establish a fraternity ceased. 

Five years later in the winter of 1881 in the "Bunce House" 
or "Snowflake" as the men nicknamed it, lived sixteen college 
girls, seven of whom called themselves the "Pleiades". Some 
of the senior members decided to apply for a charter of Kap.pa 
Alpha Theta. Realizing the value of younger girls to per- 
petuate the chapter, they invited four girls to join them. The 
anxiously awaited charter arrived June 8th. The girls with 



OLD ALLEGHENY 



119 



the exception of one initiated themselves, and chose one other 
girl to be their lirst initiate. 

This little group grew secretly until .one morning the fol- 
lowing winter all of the members ap.peared at breakfast wear- 
ing black and gold badges. Then storm clouds caused by 
groups of disapproving girls gathered but finally broke. The 
faculty, however, permitted the existence of Mu Chapter and 
the brother Greeks gladly welcomed her. 

In May, 1883, the girls were given the choice of any room 
on the fourth floor of Hulings Hall in which to live. Many 
happy times were spent in that room. In 1891 Mu was given 
a larger room, and in 1906, the Theta girls moved to their 
new two-room suite on the fourth floor of Hulings Hall. 

Gamma Rho Chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma. 

There has been nothing of the spectacular in the life of 
Gamma Rho since its founding at Allegheny College in 1888. 
Its growth and development have been normal and consistent. 
Of its total enrollment of 23 3 over 7 5% have received their 
degrees, and of this number 20% have been elected into Phi 
Beta Kappa. 




Kappa Kappa Gamma 



120 OLD ALLEGHENY 

One of the most important events in its life .occurred in 
1908 when Gamma Rho entertained the fraternity at the Bien- 
nial Convention held in Meadville. At this convention almost 
every state in the union was represented by delegates sent 
from the various chapters. 

February 22, I9l9, found Gamma Rho officiating at the in- 
stallation of Gamma Epsilon chapter cf the University of Pitts- 
burgh. 

During the war the cha.pter played a most important part 
in helping the orphans of Bellevue-Meudon, a town which was 
supported by the national fraternity. 

Another worthy project of Kappa Kappa Gamma in which 
Gamma Rho has always been most heartily interested is the 
Student Aid Fund. Any deserving college WiOman may draw 
from this found of twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000). 

Gamma Rho feels very proud to have been visited in the 
last four years by two of its charter members, Jessie Smith 
Trum.per and Bessie Putnam. These women with the Misses 
Kate and Mary Christy, and Carrie Frances Mount established 
Gamma Rho at Allegheny in February, 1888. The meetings 
were held at the home of Miss Jessie Smith until the chapter 
secured rooms on the fourth floor of Hulings Hall. 

Delta Chapter of Alpha Chi Omega 

Delta Chapter of Alpha Chi Omega was installed in Alle- 
gheny College January 29, l89l. Its founding dates friom the 
meeting of certain musical students in the Meadville Conserva- 
tory of Music which was atiiliated at that time with Allegheny 
College. Through the correspondence of the Misses Zannie 
Tate, and Elizabeth Tate of Meadville, with their cousin Miss 
Mary Satterheld, an Alpha Chi of Northwestern University, the 
local chapter was finally installed. 

On January 29, 1891, at the Tate home, Miss Satterfield, 
and Miss Price, from De Pauw University, initiated seven girls 
into Alpha Chi Omega. They were: Antoinette Snyder, (Mrs. 
Manley O. Brown), Fern Pickard, (Mrs. E. W. Stevens), Ruby 
Grick, (Mrs. Thaddeus Evans), May Tinker, (Mrs. Geo, F. 
Barr), May Breden, Zannie Tate, (Mrs. L. P. Osgood), Eliza- 
beth Tate, (Mrs. E. P. Wilson).

greetings from the other Greeks and the college who wel- 
comed the new chapter at Chapel and later by teas and re- 
ceptions in rooms in the Conservatory building, occupying 
most of that time the entire third floor. In the fall of 1901, 
rooms were secured in the Mosier building on Chestnut street. 
Later the chapter moved to Highland avenue. Since the fall 
of 1908, it has occupied a beautiful suite of rooms in Hulings 
Hall. 

Kappa Chapter of Alpha Gamma Delta 

Kappa Chapter of Alpha Gamma Delta was installed in 
Allegheny College February 23, l9l2. Some eight years be- 
fore, in 1904, six undergraduate women had founded a local 
fraternity, Theta Sigma. It was from this local that Kappa chap- 
ter was formed. Upon its founding the local was at once wel- 
comed by the other fraternities. It soon became a factor in 
fraternity life. At first the meetings were held in the Library, 
but when the suites on the fourth floor of Hulings Hall were 
completed, the rooms were chosen which Alpha Gamma Delta 
now occupies. In 1910 negotiations were entered upon with 
Alpha Gamma Delta in regard to the granting of a charter. The

similarity in many respects between the local and the na- 
tional fraternity was remarkable, and so, when Kappa Cha.pter 
of Alpha Gamma Delta was installed the change was not an 




Alpha Gamma Delta 

abrupt and revolutionary one. Since that time Kappa chapter 
has had a steady and consistent growth. 

The founders were: Edith Rowley, '05, Katharine A^lc- 
Alister, '06, Mabel E. Deane, '06, Florence L. Bates, '07, Wy- 
nona M. Baker, '08, and Lucy H. Wright, '08. 

Tallagewe. 

The Teutonia organization was founded in the years 1909 
and 1910. Its purpose is to provide for the social life of 
the non-sorority girls of Allegheny College. It has brought 
them to work for a common interest and it has thereby en- 
riched their life. Among the chief aims of the organization 
has been high scholarship and high standards of life for young 
women. The .organization has had an average enrollment of 
from twenty-five to thirty girls each year and can boast the 
fact that in its short history of ten years it has sent out eigh- 
teen Phi Beta Kappa students. 



OLD ALLEGHENY 1 23 

In the spring of 19 18, in accordance with other war ad- 
justments the name of the organization was changed to Tal- 
lagewe. 

Sigma Tau Sigma 

Shortly before the Christmas vacation in 1920 Sigma Tau 
Sigma after being lOfiicially recognized by the faculty, an- 
nounced itself a local sorority at Allegheny. 

For many months there had been great agitation for a new 
sorority on the Hill. The increased numbers of new girls, for 
whose social life the old sororities were unable to provide, 
brought home the immediate need of a new sorority. Conse- 
quently the following girls: Belle Bollinger, Marjorie Dean, 
Edna Kruse, Nancy Graham, Freida Schnell, Mildred Brown, 
Varene Collins, Wilhelmina Traum, Marguerite Brown, Mil- 
dred Brown, Charlotte Jelbart, Marjorie Lillie, Anna Redman, 
Clara Weller, Marion Einers, Kathryn Robins, Dorothy Schenck 
and Ruth Wood withdrew from Tallagewe, drafted a consti- 
tution, which was accepted by the faculty and reorganized 
under the name of Sigma Tau Sigma. However, Tallagewe 
with its rooms and furnishings, still remains as a non-sorority 
organization at Allegheny.

HONORARY FRATERNITIES 

Phi Beta Kappa 

This society is tlie forerunner and in a sense the parent of 
all the numerous Greek letter fraternities. It was founded at 
William and Mary College in 17 76. In the early days it was 
much like the fraternity of today but in time it became a non- 
secret society of graduates elected to membership on the basis 
of scholarship and character. It now occupies a field wholly 
unique. In recent years it has become more famous and in- 
fluential than ever before. There are about one hundred chap- 
ters in the strongest and best known colleges and universities 
of the country. Allegheny stands fifty-fourth. The charter 
was granted in 1901 and the chapter formally instituted in 
February, 1902. In all 279 students and alumni have been 
elected to membership. From each graduating class not more 
than one-seventh the number of men and not more than one- 
seventh the number of women in the class may be elected to 
membership by the executive, composed of the Phi Beta Ka.p- 
pa men holding full professorships in the faculty. Under cer- 
tain conditions a limited number of eligibles may be chosen to 
membership at the beginning of the senior year. In recent 
years about twelve members of each graduating class have 
won the honor of an election. Occasionally some alumnus 
whose work since graduation has been of remarkable char- 
acter is elected to membership and still more rarely some dis- 
tinguished scholar is elected to honorary membership. But 
almost exclusively the membership is made up of men and 
women whose work during the four years has been of very 
high grade. The key worn as a badge of membership is a 
reproduction of an original badge devised nearly a hundred 
?nd fifty years ago. 

The Phi Beta Kappa address has come to be one of the 
chief events of commencement week at Allegheny. In past 
years it has been given by such distinguished persons as H. W. 
Mabie, Professor Shorey, Talcott Williams, Ida M. Tarbell, 
Dean Haskins, Frederick Palmer.

Alpha Chi Sigma 

The Alpha Chi Sigma fraternity was founded at the Uni- 
versity of Wisconsin in 1902 by a group of chemistry students 
whose aim was, to perpetuate an organization which would 
bring them closer together whereby they could .profit intel- 
lectually from one another, and to establish a bond of fellow- 
ship which would continue long after each of them left the 
university. Out of this local organization has grown a na- 
tional fraternity of high rank in a comparatively short time; 
there are now thirty-one active chapters throughout the coun- 
try. Phi chapter, installed at Allegheny in I9l3, being one of 
the youngest. New members are chosen from among the 
men of the tw,o upper classes who are majoring in the Chem- 
istry Department; members of undergraduate fraternities are 
eligible. The candidates are judged upon the merit of schol- 
arship and personality. Faculty recognition was given to 
the new fraternity in Allegheny as soon as its worth was 
known, and since that time it has become one of the strong- 
est 'Organizations of its kind in the school, and the ultimate 
aim of all men men students with chemistry before them as 
a life work. 

Delta Sigma Rho 

On A.pril 13, 1906, representatives from seven of the 
large universities of the middlewest met at Chicago in re- 
sponse to an idea conceived by Professors E. E. McDermott 
of Minnesota, and H. E. Gordon of Iowa. This meeting re- 
sulted in the organization of the society of Delta Sigma Rho, 
whose purpose is to encourage sincere and effective public 
speaking. There are now over fifty chapters of Delta Sigma 
Rho in the leading colleges and universities of America. 

Charters are granted only to such institutions as have for 
five years preceeding application partici.pated in at least one 
intercollegiate contest each year, showing a high grade of ef- 
ficiency in public speaking, and whose forensic contests are 
under faculty supervision. Membership in the society is re- 
stricted to those persons who have represented their college 
in .public speaking or in an intercollegiate contest. Delta Sig- 
ma Rho has no reason to be "anti-secret", but since it is strict- 
ly an honorary fraternity it is practically "non-secret". 



126 



OLD ALLEGHENY 



Allegheny College chapter was instituted in I9l3 with 
charter members, and has followed the policy of electing to 
membership only students who have reached junior rank. 
Women are eligible as well as men, and it is to be hoped that 
in the near future the oratorical activities of the young women 
of Allegheny will take on an intercollegiate nature. 

The Gavel, the regular publication of Delta Sigma Rho, is 
devoted to fraternity notes of interest and to articles dealing 
with forensic activities in various American colleges and uni- 
versities.

Buildings and Campus 



PART I 



The college campus contains sixteen acres on the north 
edge of town nearly a mile from the business section, at an 
elevation of two hundred feet above French creek and twelve 
hundred and fifty feet above the sea. It is abundantly shaded 
by numerous varieties of trees, many of them planted by stu- 
dents nearly a century ago. The ravine which passes through 
the campus and the situation overlooking the town and valley 
for miles below, give a natural beauty hardly surpassed. The 
grounds are well provided with cement walks, and both 
grounds and buildings are kept in an attractive and sanitary 
condition. 

The heating plant, situated in the upper ravine, supplies 
steam heat to all the college buildings. It is adequate to the 
needs of the college.

Hulings Hall 

Hillings Hall, a four story brick building, is in its present 
enlarged form an almost ideal home for the one hundred fifty 
young women whom it accommodates. The original edifice, 
ninety-four by one hundred-four feet, was erected in 1881, 
by Marcus Hulings and the citizens of Meadville. In 1906 
the gymnasium and a number of rooms were added and the 
large addition built in 1920-21 completes the plan. 

The building is well heated from the central plant, lighted 
by electricity and is provided with fire escapes. It has been 
almost entirely refurnished since 19 19 and has hardwood 
floors throughout. The middle wing contains the beautiful 
new living room, gymnasium and loggia on the first floor. The 
fourth floor contains five suites of fraternity rooms and the so- 



132

ciety rooms, a new inllrmary, and the Y. W. C. A. rooms. In 
the basement are baths and dressing rooms for the gymnas- 
ium, the director's room, bowling alleys, and a laundry for the 
use of the young women. 

In the new north wing is a beautiful dining room which 
will accommodate two hundred persons. A standard elevator 
connects all the floors conveniently. The new kitchens in the 
rear are fitted with modern ap.pliances operated by electricity. 

The main entrance to the building is on Park Avenue 
where a porte-cochere is located. The parlors, living room 
and loggia, together with the gymnasium, make a spacious and 
beautiful area for large social affairs. The quiet elegance and 
harmonious coloring of the decorations and furnishings of the 
public rooms provide a background for the cultured home life 
provided for the young women of the college.

Ford Memorial Chapel 



Ford Memorial Chapel 

Ford Memorial Chapel was erected in 1901-2 through the 
generosity of Captain John B. Ford, of Creighton, Pa., in mem- 
ory of his wife. It is of rock-faced Cleveland sandstone, in 
Gothic Romanesque style, with a spacious auditorium seating 
fcur hundred tifty, besides a gallery seating one hundred fifty, 
and an oratory seating one hundred tifty. The rich stained 
glass windows and the harmonious interior appointments add 
much to the stateliness of the building. 

The chapel is provided with a splendid pi.pe organ, the 
gift of the granddaughters of Captain Ford, Mrs. J. A. Ballan- 
tyne and Misses Nellie and Stella Ford, who contributed ^6,000 
for this purpose. The organ was designed by Mr. W. L. Mayer, 
of Pittsburgh, and was built by the late Julius Neef, of Phila- 
delphia. It has three manuals and 1,920 pipes, and is sup- 
plied with the best devices of great modern organs.

Reis Library, and the "Seven Sisters" in the foreground 



The Library 

The Library building, the gift of W. E. Reis, '69, was com- 
pleted in 1902. It provided a suitable home for the books 
which made the college famous even in its early days. The 
building, which occupies the most commanding situation on 
the cam.pus is eighty-live by seventy-four feet. It is construc- 
ted of vitrified brick with terra-cotta trimmings, in Italian 
Renaissance style. It has a two story stack room with a 
capacity of sixty thousand volumes and many of the seminar 
rooms are also used for books. An octagonal reading room 
with an artistic glass ceiling opens from the vestibule. A 
reference room, a periodical room, office and cloak rooms are 
on the first floor. The second floor is occupied with seminar 
and department study rooms and a faculty room. The inter- 



OLD ALLEGHENY

ior is finely tlnished and the walls are adorned with several 
good paintings. The Library building is the center of the club 
and department activities outside of the scientific departments 
which have their own collections of books; these for greater 
convenience, are housed in the se.parate buildings and each de- 
partment holds its club meetings in its own building. 

To the original collections there is a steadily increasing 
accession of the best reference and general literature. The 
^periodical list is exceptionally good for a college of this size 
and the fact that the Library is a depository for state and na- 
tional documents adds to its power of service.

Cochran Hall 

By the generous gift of Mrs. Sarah B. Cochran of Dawson,

Alden Hall 

Since the erection of this building in I9l5 it has been re- 
built and greatly enlarged into a modern two-story structure 
for the department of Biology and Geology. Constructed of 
gray vitrified brick and terra cotta and roofed with red Span- 
ish tile, it forms an imposing building sixty feet wide by one 
hundred twenty feet long, with the main entrance on George 
street. The spacious halls lined with cases for the display of 
biological specimens, the rough sand finish of the walls, and 
the stained oak woodwork and furnishings produce a most 
pleasing interior. 

The building is divided on the first floor into a large lec- 
ture room in the east end, a library, a professor's office, two 
private laboratories, and four advanced laboratories, two store 
rooms, an office, and a vivarium. The basement contains six 
rooms which are used by the department for aquaria, work 
shop, store rooms, etc. The building is exceptionally well- 
lighted and is equipped with tables, lockers and apparatus.

Carnegfie Hall of Chemistry 



Carnegie Hall of Chemistry 

Carnegie Hall is the latest addition to the group of college 
buildings and is devoted entirely to the use of the department 
of Chemistry. The erection of the building was made possible 
by a gift of ^40,000 by Mr. Andrew Carnegie. This contri- 
bution was made with the understanding, however, that the 
trustees of the college add ^10,000 to this sum for the build- 
ing and, furthermore, that an additional sum of ^20,000 be 
laised for the purpose of .providing a definite income for the 
maintainence of the building. The trustees not .only met the 
terms of the gift but immediately appropriated a generous sum 
to be used for the purchase of adequate equipment of the 
laboratories. 

With the completion of this building late in the year of 
l9lS, the college came into possession of a $70,000 plant for 
chemistry, not including the equipment, which will amount to 
approximately $20,000. 

The building is constructed of buff tapestry brick with 
artificial stone trimmings, in the Italian villa style. The roof 
is of red Spanish tile. The interior structure is of pressed 
steel entirely. Owing to the fact that it was deemed advisable 
for hygienic purposes to substitute heavy four-inch wooden 



142 



OLD ALLEGHENY 



floors for cement, it is necessary to describe the building as 
of "slow-burning construction". 

There are 24 rooms in the building. All these rooms have 
been equipped as otfices for members of the instructing staff, 
or as laboratories for the general courses in chemistry and for 
research work. The building is sup.plied with electricity, both 
A. C. and D. C, high pressure steam for operating steam baths, 
and with satisfactory ventilating hoods and laboratories.

The New Gymnasium 



The Gymnasium 

The new Gymnasium was completed in the fall of 1921. 
Athletics had shown such an unusual advance that it became 
essential to have increased accommodations and modern equip- 
ment. The building is constructed of native stone and red 
brick. It is similar to the old gymnasium, with greater ca.pac- 
ity, and th addition of a rear wing. The improvements were 
made at an expense of over $100,000. 

Outstanding features of the new building are: first, the 
floor, 60 feet by 90 feet in the clear, with wide balcony and 
running track; second, the swimming pool, 22 feet by 60 feet; 
its greatest depth is eight feet. The sides and bottom are of 
white tile, light being supplied by large windows with south- 
ern exposure. Third, the team rooms, with terrazzo floors, 
marble lined showers, six-foot steel lockers, rubbing down 
tables and emergency equipment. Provisions are also made 
for a director's office, examination room, trophy and Block 
"A" Club room, lockers and private shower baths for officials, 
and a room for boxing and wrestling.

The Pennsylvania College of Music 

The Pennsylvania College of Music was originally chartered 
in 1887, as the Meadville Conservatory of Music. From the 
beginning it has steadily aimed at the highest standard of ex- 
cellence in its special educational field, and although never in- 
cluded as a part of Allegheny College, it has been closely as- 
soicated with it. Students attending Allegheny College may 
conveniently arrange courses of study with the College cf 
Music. The college has a large and competent faculty, and a 
curriculum that includes every department of musical study, as 
well as the allied arts.

l68 OLD ALLEGHENY 

PART III 
YOUR ALLEGHENY 

A recent number of the Boston Transcript publishes a sig- 
nificant review by Henry T. Claus, of the year's academic 
output. Several facts in the article stand out with some prom- 
inence. By far the greatest numerical growth in student at- 
atendance in the last decade has been in the state colleges and 
publicly supported institutions; technical and "bread and but- 
ter" courses are relatively increasing; the number of Bachelors 
of Arts as compared with those receiving other degrees in de- 
creasing. 

It will be of interest to readers of The Tribune-Republi- 
can to know in what light this review of the decade .places 
Allegheny. In the first place it is gratifying that Allegheny is 
included in a tabulation of the 4 7 leading colleges and uni- 
versities of America. An examination of the tabulated rec- 
ords contained in the article shows that while most of the East- 
ern colleges which are not primarily technical schools have 
either gained very slightly in number of graduates (Bryn 
Mawr, Rutgers and Swartmore), or have not gained at all (Am- 
herst and Harvard). Allegheny shows an increase of 50 per 
cent, in the decade. In fact, including technical schools and 
state institutions, only 13 have a higher percentage of gain. 

It is recognized that a material increase of attendance in a 
college may be due to the introduction of new departments, 
cr to serious modifications of the curriculum. Allegheny has 
merely developed the departments of 10 years ago, and has 
maintained its policy of progressive conservatism, and the 
concentration of emphasis on the cultural function of a college, 
while the .percentage of graduates receiving the Bachelor of 
Arts degree in a list of 23 colleges is only an average of 24 
per cent., Allegheny has a proportion of nearly 80 per cent. 
This shows that the increased attendance is not due to any 
great change in the ideals of education. 

This tabulated comparison, coming as it does on the heels 
of the recent flattering reports of the General Educational 
Board and the National Department of Education, which have 
both subjected the college to a searching examination, not only 
financially, but scholastically, will be a source of gratification 



OLD ALLEGHENY 169 

to the alumni and friends of Allegheny. And the best of it is, 
that this growth has been experienced without great resources: 
for, as the report indicates, compared with state institutions 
with heavy endowments and a.ppropriations, Allegheny, even 
with its newly added half-million, is far from being a rich col- 
lege. It all goes to show what a place there is in the American 
system of education for a college of this type. 

From Tribune- Republican of August 8, 1912.

PLAN FOR THE SELECTION OF ALUMNI TRUSTEES OF 
ALLEGHENY COLLEGE, MEADVILLE, PA. 

1. No one shall be eligible to serve as Alumni trustee ex- 
cept a graduate of Allegheny College of not less than l5 years 
standing. All graduates of Allegheny College who have paid 
their yearly dues, and are, therefore, in "good standing" with 
the General Alumni Association, shall be entitled to nominate 



OLD ALLEGHENY I7I 

and vote for Alumni trustees at any election after one com- 
mencement has elapsed succeeding their graduation. The an- 
nual fee in the General Alumni Association, the payment of 
which shall be a prerequisite to voting at any election, shall be 
$\, and must be paid before the closing of the .polls as herein- 
after provided. 

2. Directors of the Alumni Association shall elect a secre- 
tary of the Alumni, who shall also act as treasurer, and they 
shall fix his term of service and compensation, which shall be 
paid from the annual dues collected. The secretary-treasurer 
shall have charge of the enrollment of the alumni. No member 
ci the Faculty, or of the Board of Trustees, shall be eligible to 
act as secretary-treasurer. And no member of the Faculty shall 
be eligible to election as Alumni trustee. 

3. In January of each year the secretary shall issue a call 
for the nomination of candidates to be voted for at the next 
election. Nominations must be signed and forwarded to the 
secretary before the tlrst of April, on which day nominations 
shall close. Only those who have been nominated by at least 
10 graduates shall be candidates for positions on the Board 
of Trustees. On or before the first day of May of each year 
the secretary shall send to every enrolled graduate an official 
ballot with directions how to mark the same, and a return en- 
velope marked "Confidential," and addressed to the secretary. 
The official ballot shall contain the names and addresses of 
all the candidates for such trusteeship, with date of gradua- 
tion of each, his employment since that time, and his present 
occu.pation. The directors of the General Alumni Association 
shall devise such a form of ballot as shall preserve the secrecy 
of the voting and make it easy and effective. With the official 
ballot the secretary shall also enclose a notice of the annual 
meeting of the Alumni to be held during the following Com- 
mencement week, together with the text of any proposed 
amendments to this plan, which may have been duly and regu- 
larly submitted to him. An enrolled graduate who has lost or 
failed to receive the original official ballot sent to him shall be 
entitled to receive a duplicate ballot upon written applica- 
tion to the secretary. 

4. The annual selection for Alumni trustees shall take 



1 72 OLD ALLEGHENY 

place in Meadville, Pa., on the Monday of Commencement 
week, and the polls shall close at 6 .p. m. of that day. The 
Alumni secretary, a member of the Faculty, and a member 
of the Board of Trustees, to be appointed by their respective 
bodies, shall act as tellers and have entire charge of the elec- 
tion. The tellers shall act by a majority; and in case of the 
absence or disability of any teller, the president of the college 
shall name a substitute or substitutes to till any vacancy so 
existing. Electors may cast their ballots in person or by mail; 
and all ballots received by the secretary shall be held by him 
unopened until after the closing of the polls, when they shall 
be delivered to the tellers. The secretary shall furnish the 
tellers an alphabetical list of all alumni in "good standing" as 
per Section 1 of this -plan. No ballots shall be considered ex- 
cept those received from members who have the right to vote. 
The tellers before entering upon their duties shall take an oath 
that they will conduct the election fairly and will not reveal to 
any one how any elector has voted. 

5. Immediately after the closing of the polls the tellers 
shall proceed to open the ballots, complete the count of the 
vote, and certify in writing to the Board of Trustees the name 
of the candidate or candidates receiving the highest number of 
votes, and also the number of votes by each candidate, and the 
returns of the election shall be posted conspicuously by the 
secretary. A list of all persons voting at each election shall 
be ke.pt on tile by the secretary for the inspection of any of 
the Alumni electorate. At any election there shall be chosen a 
sufficient number of Alumni trustees to till up the full quota 
to which the Alumni are then entitled, and the candidate or 
candidates having received the highest number of votes shall 
be declared by the tellers to be the choice of the Alumni for 
the existing vacancy or vacancies. The drawing of lots shall 
be resorted to to break a tie. 

6. Any vacancy occurring among the Alumni trustees by 
death, resignation, or otherwise, shall be tilled at the next elec- 
tion in the same manner as heretofore prescribed. 

7. This plan for the election of Alumni trustees may be 
changed or modified subject to the approval of the Board of 
Trustees at any regular annual meeting of the General Alumni 



OLD ALLEGHENY 1 73 

Association held during Commencement week, by a three- 
fourths vote of the "good standing" alumni present provided 
the said change, or mcditlcation in writing, shall be tiled with 
the secretarytreasurer at least 90 days before the said annual 
meeting, and the text of the proposed change or modification 
shall have been mailed to the enrolled graduates, as provided 
in Section 3 of this .plan. 

Respectfully submitted,

Committee. 

Two important amendments to the plan for the selection of 
Alumni trustees were passed at the annual meeting of the 
General Alumni Association in June 1914 and were ratified by 
the Board of Trustees of the college at their semi-annual meet- 
ing in January 191 5. 

First, It was voted that all references to a fee as a pre- 
requisite to voting be stricken out. 

Second, The polls shall clcse at two p. m. on Wednesday 
of Commencement week instead of six p. m. on Monday.

TRUE ALUMNI SPIRIT 
Letter of T. J. Hagerty, '54 

St. Louis, Mo., June 20, 1909. 

President of Alumni Association, 
Greeting: 

The class of '54 first saw the old college when there was 
only one lone building, which was badly whittled in the old 
chapel, the benches, stairs, and front door. The campus was 
covered by a scrubby undergrowth, with the exception of a 
few chestnut trees, so that the view of the scattered village 
in the valley, and the view of the hills beyond were not in the 
least obstructed. 

We had a faculty in those days, true men were they. 
Barker, Clark, Hamnett, Kingsley and Williams, were men of 
sterling worth in all good works. We had students in those 
days, rounding into position and worth; one to the President's 
chair, many to governors' seat, and many more to Congress, 
others gained the Episcopal office in the church, ministers of 
great importance among the churches. So far as I now know, 
there are but four of us now living. How much the other 
three think of the old college, I am not able to affirm, but I 
still have a weakness of often thinking of and writing to the 
old college, and of visiting it when I can. A good time to you 
all, and many days more to follow in the some line. 

Kindliest greetings from 

T. J. HAGERTY, (1854) 



A Message to the Alumni 

The editor of "Old Allegheny" has asked that I send a 
brief message to the alumni through this publication. I am 
very glad to do this. 

All of us, at some period of our lives, have heard that old 
English legend, "St. George and the Dragon". You will re- 
call how the dragon came each day to the gates of the city 



OLD ALLEGHENY 243 

and demanded so many of its inhabitants as hostages, threaten- 
ing that if his wish were not acceded to, he would destroy the 
entire city. This procedure continued for many days and the 
people were in great fear. There finally appeared a man who 
said he would go out and slay the dragon. He succeeded, and 
the city was freed from the terrible menace. They called him 
St. George, and, as the legend goes, his fame spread through- 
out the land. It is a simple little tale — but, exemplifies that 
which we all need — Courage. 

Allegheny College, figuratively is in a similar position. For 
the past two years her dragon (in the form of increased ex- 
penses) has been growing more ravenous. We all know that 
our dragon cannot be slain, at least for several years. We 
can, however, meet its demands by raising an additional en- 
dowment fund sufficient to meet its increased demands. Each 
of us must constitute himself as an individual St. George and 
help bring about this result by raising ^1,250,000. 

Allegheny College has had an honorable past resplendent 
with accom.plishments. Her alumni have taken their places 
as leading men and women in the ministry, in education, in 
engineering, at the bar, on the bench, in business and in all 
other walks of life. Her future will be even more magnificent 
if she is permitted to go on free from debt. The state of 
Pennsylvania, our country, and, in fact, the whole world needs 
the products of Allegheny. 

These are indeed days that try men's souls. The radical 
element, unleashed by four years of the most terrific warfare 
the world has ever seen, is trying to undermine and break 
down our laws, our customs and institutions. We need col- 
lege trained men and women to carry on the activities and di- 
rect the course of world affairs in coming years. Allegheny 
has done her duty in the past, and with the help of her alumni 
she will not shirk her duty in the future. 

Let us, then, fellow alumni, put our shoulders to the wheel 
and successfully carry on this Second Century Drive for our 
Alma Mater. Let us show everyone that Allegheny's sons are 
loyal and that they have been weighed on the scales and not 
found wanting. 

This, then, is my message as president of the Board of 



244 



OLD ALLEGHENY 



Trustees. The task before all of us is a tremendous one. We 
realize fully the dit^iculty in conducting such a campaign in 
these times of business depression. But, as before mentioned, 
Allegheny has before her but two courses. There is no mid- 
dle ground. We must either reduce the size of the college 
and go back to the status of a third or fourth rate institution, 
or put this drive over and continue as a real, red-blooded Amer- 
ican college of the first rank. 

The latter course is the only honorable one to follow. 
We have accepted it, and we call on you for earnest, unselfish 
and cheerful cooperation. 




Pittsburgh, Pa., March 17, 1921, 



OLD ALLEGHENY 245 



This .poem was written on the occasion of a commencement 
by Rev. John D. Hammond, D.D., '66, and dedicated to his 
classmate and friend, Newton Chalker: 

We Two Old Grads and Gray 

Here, once, again, we stand, my friend 

On the well-worn steps of Bentley Hall, 
Where sunshine and the shadows blend, 

About the doorway and the wall. 
What anxious feet have trod this stair. 

Where patient plodding finds a throne. 
What eagerness to do and dare. 

Has come and gone across this stone! 

The record says it is fifty years. 

Since last we stood together here, 
A record full of hopes and fears. 

With now a smile and now a tear. 
The camera notes the graying pall, 

And telltale wrinkles of the face. 
But there is no aging of the soul. 

No shortening of the final race. 

So give me your hand again, my friend. 

In the good old-fashioned, hearty way. 
For we know, whenever we shall come to the end 

'Twill be but another Commencement Day. 
Thus under the sunshine on the wall, 

We two old classmates, grads and gray. 
From the well-worn steps of Bentley Hall 

Greet the young Alleghenians on their way.
